On Tuesday (7/30, 2 pm) we’ll be hosting a one-hour Informational webinar about the Trilemma Challenge for this year’s CSUPERB Ideas Lab.
The “dean” of this year’s Ideas Lab, Dr. Ray Rodriguez
(UC Davis), will talk about challenges local communities have optimizing the balance between healthy ecosystems, healthy communities and food production. While attendance isn’t mandatory for applicants, we hope it will jumpstart the system-wide conversation. You can register to get an email reminder here (https://bit.ly/2ZbhKvV
), or just tune in via Zoom at: https://SDSU.zoom.us/j/391125975
Ideas Lab applications are due Friday, August 2nd.
As summer research projects wrap up and the 32nd Annual CSU Biotechnology Symposium poster abstract deadline looms on SEPTEMBER 16 (Monday, by 5 pm)
, I wonder if you’ve seen this new poster design
making its way onto scientific conferences worldwide. Look to the CSUPERB website
for symposium information as it becomes available right after the FCG/SPC meetings the first week in August!
This newsletter comes to you from Goiânia, a city in the state of Goiás, Brazil! I’m at NUCLEO'19 - the southern hemisphere counterpart to CSUPERB’s symposium. I gave the opening keynote this evening to an audience of 350 biotechnology students from public (federal) universities all over Brazil. I’m also evaluating entrepreneurship teams tomorrow and running a I-Corps Ideation Workshop on Saturday for faculty, regional entrepreneurs, and administrators. It’s been a great trip and it’s so interesting to see how much is the same and where the differences are in our biotech “ecosystems.” The photo below is me with the student organizing committee for NUCLEO'19. I hear there are many more photos on Instagram with #nucleo19 or #lina Biotec hashtag variants! Boa noite!
