Cal U will host the annual meeting of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania University Biologists on April 16.

Founded in 1973, CPUB emphasizes undergraduate student research and provides funds for that research through a competitive grant process.

Its activities have included scientific meetings, symposia and institutes for the professional development of its members and associates. The organization also provides a forum for graduate and undergraduate students to present their research.

Cal U campus director Dr. Brian Paulson, a professor in the Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences, estimated that as many as 150 faculty and students from PASSHE universities will arrive for the meeting in the Eberly Science and Technology Center.

Dr. Sam Taylor, newly appointed director of the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, will give the keynote address.

The meting will close with a banquet and recognition of winners in various research categories. An outstanding student from each school also will be honored.

Cal U’s CPUB Outstanding is Bethany Stone, a senior from Susquehanna, Pa., who is majoring in fisheries and wildlife biology.
