CSUPERB Newsletter - Issue #26
By CSUPERB Newsletter • Issue #26 • View online
It’s that time of year that I’m seeking high resolution, “biotech” research images (of data, not people!) to feature on the annual symposium poster, banners, and CSUPERB’s social media feeds. Please send images to - we’ll credit your lab group widely all year long!
I’m happy to announce the newly elected members of the Strategic Planning Council (SPC) for terms starting in AY 2019-2020:
  • Miri VanHoven (San Jose State University)
  • Bori Mazzag (Humboldt State University)
  • Katherine McReynolds (CSU Sacramento) &
  • Sastry Pantula (Dean, CSU San Bernardino).
The SPC sets program policies, develops strategic plans, and leads CSUPERB working committees all year long. Dr. VanHoven and Dean Pantula are newly elected members of the council and I’m delighted to welcome them! Drs. McReynolds and Mazzag have been re-elected to the SPC. I want to thank Dr. Daryl Eggers (San Jose State University) for his service to and leadership. Daryl was the inaugural and very effective organizer of CSUPERB’s Bioengineering Network - he’ll be missed on the SPC and in the program office!
