The Don Eden Graduate Student Research Award fosters excellence in graduate student research throughout the California State University (CSU) system in biotechnology-related research, covering a broad range of topics in cellular, molecular, chemical and physical studies of the life sciences.
This award honors Professor Don Eden (San Francisco State University) who held his students, colleagues and himself to the highest standards of excellence in research. In 1998, Professor Eden received the CSUPERB Faculty Research Award and was a tireless participant in CSUPERB governance from that time until his death in 2000. Professor Eden's own research was in biophysics and physical biochemistry, therefore, nomination of students using these approaches is particularly encouraged.
The Don Eden Award program is open to any CSU student engaged in master's level biotechnology research or in the first two years of a doctoral biotechnology-related program. Previous Eden Award winners are not eligible. Finalists will present research posters and give talks during the awards session at the 26th Annual CSU Biotechnology Symposium, January 9-11, 2014 in Santa Clara, California.
A prize of $750 will be made to support the education of the award recipient. The remainder (maximum up to a $1,000) will be available to reimburse awardee's expenses incurred traveling to a national or international scientific meeting to present the award-winning research. Travel must occur while individual is still an active student (not yet graduated).
