This program seeks to enhance the presentation skills of students after their research experiences. The ASM Undergraduate Research Capstone Program (UR-Capstone) focuses on enhancing presentations and networking skills, and provide students with resources to transition to disciplinary scientific meetings. Dr. Cleber Ouverney from San Jose State University is Diana Hooker Romero’s mentor. The title of the research project is: Exploring the Interaction Between the EccC ATPase and its Secreted Substrates in Mycobacterium tuberculosis.

Applications Available for the Chancellor's Doctoral Incentive Program
The California State University is now accepting applications for the 2014-2015 Chancellor’s Doctoral Incentive Program (CDIP). The goal of the program is to increase the pool of qualified candidates for future CSU faculty positions by funding the education of doctoral students. Currently, the program is the largest of its kind in the nation. Through August 2013, it had loaned some $46 million to doctoral students throughout the nation; 1,154 of these recipients successfully earned doctoral degrees and 56% have subsequently obtained employment in CSU instructional faculty positions. It is open to domestic and international students and to those applying for and already attending PhD and some professional doctoral programs. This is a prestigious and generous award program, and San Jose State has been very successful in receiving awards. For links to the application, and more information, see our CDIP webpage.
