January 5, 2019: Congratulations to Fred Fregoso (Fischhaber lab) for winning the Eden Award at this year's CSUPERB Symposium! The Eden Award is a competitive honor given to a graduate student in the CSU who has been most successful in presenting his thesis research, in the form of an essay, poster and 10-minute seminar presentation at the symposium. The field was very competitive this year and Fred should be commended for doing so well to clearly convey his complex research results. Well done, Fred!
