The CBE is pleased to continue its Young Investigator program to encourage the participation of outstanding non-MSU biofilm investigators at its annual Montana Biofilm Science & Technology Meeting.

Awardees will be chosen by the CBE Executive Committee based on research quality and relevance of the material to the CBE's mission, which is to advance fundamental interdisciplinary research and education related to the management of bacterial biofilms, and to transfer that knowledge to the realm of applied science and technology.
