Andreoli Faculty Service Award
This award honors a CSU faculty member who has made outstanding contributions to the development of biotechnology-relevant programs in the California State University. The award is named after Professor Anthony Andreoli (CSU, Los Angeles). Because Dr. Andreoli felt fortunate that life had provided him with many opportunities, he believed that it was his responsibility to do everything he could in order to provide similar opportunities for others.
Don Eden Graduate Student Research Award
This award is designed to foster excellence in graduate student research throughout the CSU system in biotechnology-related research. It is named after Professor Don Eden (San Francisco State University) who held his students, colleagues and himself to the highest standards of excellence in research.
Student Early-Stage Biotechnology Commercialization Challenge
The CSUPERB Student Challenge involves teams of students (science, engineering and business) applying creative thought to a biotechnology (idea) and developing a market application (product) for that biotechnology.
Faculty Research Award
This system-wide award recognizes a CSU faculty researcher who has demonstrated outstanding scientific achievement in the life sciences and biotechnology.
Howell-CSUPERB Research Scholars Award
CSUPERB has partnered with the Doris A. Howell Foundation for Women's Health Research to co-fund $3500 Research Scholars Awards for CSU undergraduate researchers.
Glenn Nagel Undergraduate Research Award
This award is aimed at fostering excellence in undergraduate student research throughout the CSU system in biotechnology-related research. The award is named after Dean Glenn Nagel (CSU, Long Beach), who worked throughout his career to promote high-quality undergraduate research.
Crellin Pauling Student Teaching Award
The Pauling Family has endowed the Crellin Pauling Student Teaching Award so that two awards ($2000 each) will be made to student teachers or teaching assistants in biotechnology-related settings, courses and programs. In line with the AAAS/NSF Vision & Change Report, we know that recognition for outstanding teaching practices is an important component of changing the way science and engineering is taught to better match the way it is done.
This award is named after Professor Crellin Pauling (San Francisco State University) for his extraordinary contributions to the training of teachers and scientists and his commitment to the creation of a scientifically literate electorate.
