Long Beach biological studies
Ronald M. Evans
Ronald M. Evans of the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in La Jolla will present the annual Allergan Foundation Distinguished Lecture on Wednesday, Feb. 20, 2013 presented by the California State University, Long Beach (CSULB) Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry.
Fruit flies (Drosophila melanogaster) may seem like pests to most people, but their simple biologic structure makes them ideal hosts for a variety of scientific experiments.
For her work in identifying a fruit fly gene that can be useful in diabetes and other biological studies, Melissa Kaye Jones from Cal State Long Beach (CSULB) received the 2012 Don Eden Graduate Student Research Award at the 24th annual California State University Biotechnology Symposium held recently in Santa Clara.
