CSUPERB Newsletter - Issue #29
By CSUPERB Newsletter • Issue #29 • View online
We’re pleased to feature four CSUPERB PIs in our AY 18-19 Annual Report (linked here): Karin Kram (CSU Dominguez Hills), John Valdovinos (CSU Northridge), Chantal Stieber (Cal Poly Pomona) and Katharine Watts (Cal Poly San Luis Obispo). We’ve also updated our Data Dashboard (available year-round), reporting on the 1086 CSU students we’ve supported since 2000, updated financials, and other grant programs data. And, since even SPC members forget sometimes, remember you can search the CSUPERB Grants Database anytime! Both sets of data can be found year-round at our website (look for the red buttons under Dr. Jayasinghe’s giant photo!).
Last week we received 335 poster abstracts from 22 CSU campuses for the 32nd Annual CSU Biotechnology Symposium. They’ve been sent out for review by the hardest-working CSUPERB committee, our 21 poster abstract reviewers. There are lots of other CSUPERB deadlines coming up this fall (see below), so AY 19-20 is rolling here in the program office!
The inaugural 2019 Ideas Lab convened at Fresno State Sept. 12-14. We hosted 27 faculty from 14 campuses to solve problems related to California’s ecosystem-food production-health “trilemma.” The purpose of the Ideas Lab program is to catalyze interdisciplinary research team formation. Between now and February, the teams have time and support to learn from each other, work together, integrate their research strands, and recruit missing expertise for a follow-on grant proposal in 2020. We can’t wait to see what happens next (more below)!

The inaugural CSUPERB Ideas Lab was hosted at CSU Fresno and led by Dr. Christopher Meyer (Dean, College of Science and Mathematics, CSU Fresno).
