College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics
The College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics is a leader in undergraduate and graduate student research. Housed in a complex that includes the recently completed, state-of-the-art Hall of Science, the Molecular and Life Sciences Center, the Microbiology Building, and Faculty Office 3, the college's six departments offer 22 degree programs at the graduate and undergraduate levels.
- CSULB's team of graduate students from the Department of Geological Sciences earned second place in the Pacific Region Imperial Barrel Award competition. The team consisted of graduate students Ben Davidson, Jack Farrell, Maia Davis, Ryan Weller and Alex Sedlak and was advised by Dr. Tom Kelty. Read more about the Imperial Barrel award at Inside CSULB.
- Dr. Chris Lowe was awarded the 2016 Nell and John Wooden Ethics in Leadership Award by the Ukleja Center for Ethical Leadership at CSULB. Read more about the Wooden Ethics award at Inside CSULB.

- Physic's Galen Pickett and his faculty colleagues were mentioned in Inside CSULB's March 15 issue for their efforts in making physics more fun and more diverse.
- The CNSM Student Council is pleased to present the 37th Nobel Laureate Lecture on Tuesday, March 1, 2016 in the University Student Union Ballroom with Sir Richard Roberts, the recipient of the 1993 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, for the discovery of split genes. Dr. Roberts has been credited with saying that this discovery has shown us a new degree of complexity in plant and animal DNA, and was critical for interpreting the human genome sequence.
- The Press Telegram reports on the recent findings of Rachel Flores, a Biology major in the Livingston Lab and CSULB senior, who has been researching sea stars and urchins skeleton formation to help develop understanding and possible treatment for osteoporosis.
- It's on CSULB's Beach TV: Bugs have the story! Join Dessie Underwood at the March 17, 2016 Fellows Colloquium as she tells us how bugs and diatoms can help us determine the health of our fresh water systems.
- HHS 290 - Interdisciplinary Approaches to Health Disparities. Are you interested in learning how we can help improve the health of our underserved communities? A new course is being offered that will expose you to the factors that put certain groups at increased risk for poor health outcomes, as well as the ways that research is trying to address those issues.
- CSULB can proudly add a Silver LEED certification to the list of campus credits. The construction of the Hall of Science is recognized for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED). The Hall of Science received the prestigious certification for the Building Design and Construction in 2014. The plaque has been added to wall inside the Hall of Science.
