CSUPERB Newsletter - Issue #24
By CSUPERB Newsletter • Issue #24 • View online
It’s official: the 32nd Annual CSU Biotechnology Symposium will be held January 16-18, 2020, at the Santa Clara Marriott. Save the dates and remember that poster abstracts will probably be due mid-September.
We are delighted to announce that three Course-based Undergraduate Research Experiences (CUREs) experts within the CSU system have come on board to serve as CSUPERB CUREs Network “Editors.” They are Kelly McDonald (CSU Sacramento)David Rhoads (CSU San Bernardino), and Corin Slown (CSU Monterey Bay). They have extensive experience designing and teaching effective CUREs courses, publishing lessons-learned, and leading larger, grant-funded CUREs efforts on their campuses and/or collaborations with nationwide CUREs. Later this year look for a CUREs Network website, a regular newsletter, and plans for future webinars and symposium workshops. A reminder - if you want to stay “in the loop,” email Paula Fischhaber ( and she’ll add you to the email distribution list.
Until we get the CUREs Network newsletter up and running - please send news items highlighting CSU faculty and student accomplishments based on CURE projects to Susan Baxter ( or tag it on Twitter with #csuperb.
