The California Council on Science and Technology (CCST), a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization established via the California State Legislature to inform state leaders, celebrated 2019 Science & Technology Week with a series of events at the State Capitol.
On February 6, CCST hosted its third California Science Translators Showcase, featuring graduate students and postdoctoral researchers from UC Davis, UC Irvine, UC Merced, UC Riverside, UC San Diego, UC San Francisco, Stanford, and Caltech, who discussed their research with decision makers in an informal mixer setting. The CCST showcase was organized in partnership with California State Assemblymember Jose Medina (D-Riverside), Chair of the Assembly Committee on Higher Education.
