CSUN Biology Professor Appointed to State Advisory Panel

Cal State Northridge biology professor Steve Oppenheimer has been appointed by the state of California to an advisory panel that will help shape the future of science education in the state.

Oppenheimer, who has taught biology at CSUN for 30 years, will serve on the Science Subject Matter Advisory Panel for the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing.

"The health, welfare and security of the United States are dependent on excellent science instruction," Oppenheimer said. "The work of this panel should help the state of California produce high quality science teachers."

The panel is expected to develop comprehensive recommendations to the commission about what subjects should be required for prospective science teachers.

Oppenheimer is also the director of the Center for Cancer and Developmental Biology, and a Trustee Outstanding Professor of the Cal State University system.
