CABS Con 4 Opens in new window

CABS Con4 is a one-day meeting aimed at creating a fairly informal atmosphere to explore and discuss the advances in different disciplines within the framework of Biotechnology. Going beyond the traditional boundaries of Biotech research, this meeting welcomes people interested in applied mathematics, engineering, physics, as well as chemistry/biochemistry/biology. Our objectives are to facilitate networking with invited speakers from successful Biotech companies, becoming familiar with students research projects, and encouraging dialogue between students and researchers from academia and industry. CABS Con3 will take place on Friday, November 8 2019 at the   CalState Fullerton Campus, Titan Hall. Participation is free but registration is required (attendance is limited to first 100 students).

Summer Research Experience For Undergraduates (REU) 2019

CSU LSAMP Costa Rica Summer Research Training Expedition, Summer 2019Opens in new window

The Costa Rica Summer Research Training Expedition is a hands-on 5 week introductory research experience that immerses students in the study of tropical environments and biological diversity, statistics and research methods, current issues in conservation, and Costa Rican geography and culture. Students receive instruction in the development of research questions, fundamentals of experimental design, sampling, hypothesis testing, and the responsible conduct of research, while engaging in hands-on activities across a wide variety of habitats and landscapes. Students with little or no research experience engage with group and individual research activities in terrestrial and marine/aquatic environments. Student independent research projects over the years have ranged widely according to their interests and curiosity. All student participants present their research at the end of the program before they leave Costa Rica and over the years many have gone on to present their independent research at national conferences.

Though the program is hosted by facilitators from CSU LSAMP @ Monterey Bay, all CSU undergraduates, especially first and second year students and all CSU LSAMP participants, are invited to apply.
