The California State University Program for Education and Research in Biotechnology (CSUPERB) aims to increase the overall number of externally funded biotechnology research investigators across the California State University (CSU) system. In addition CSUPERB recognizes the importance of research experiences in engaging, retaining and graduating biotechnology students. The Faculty-Student Collaborative Research New Investigator Grant program aims to provide CSU faculty with the resources required not only to successfully compete for follow-on, externally funded grants, but also to involve CSU students in their scholarship and research programs.
