Skills and Interests

Biology is central to all biotechnologies. CSUPERB involves students and faculty from Life, Physical, Computer and Clinical Science, Engineering, Agriculture, Math and Business departments.
CSUPERB's mission is to develop a professional biotechnology workforce by mobilizing and supporting collaborative California State University (CSU) student and faculty research, innovating educational practices, and responding to and anticipating the needs of the life science industry. We define the life science industry quite broadly - including not only biotech R&D, but also diagnostics, clinical laboratory sciences, agriculture, environmental monitoring, medical devices, assistive technologies and health IT.
Business/General (Advanced)
Focus is on entrepreneurship - but that wasn't a choice! CSUPERB offers programs to support entrepreneurship education for both students and faculty. Since 2012 we've organized the CSUPERB-I2P Early-Stage Biotechnology Commercialization Challenge.
