The Presidential Awards for Excellence in Science, Mathematics and Engineering Mentoring: Recipient Details

Frank Bayliss

Affiliation: San Francisco State University
State:   CA
Award Type:   Individual
Award Year:   2008
Citation:   Professor Frank Bayliss has provided more than 25 years of teaching service at San Francisco State University (SFSU). He established the campus' first genetic engineering research laboratory and SFSU's Student Enrichment Opportunities office in 1992. The SEO office enhances the education and research experiences of undergraduate and graduate biology and chemistry students by establishing an interlocking system of talent development and support that spans the freshman-to-Ph.D. student continuum. 64 of Professor Bayliss' minority students have won admission to Ph.D. programs at top research universities, 19 former students have completed Ph.D. degrees, an additional 20 were expected to complete their Ph.D. in 2008, and 102 were on track to earn the Ph.D. within the next five years. This exceptionally high level of success is particularly noteworthy because for many decades few SFSU minority students applied to or entered Ph.D. programs.
