SF State professor honored by President Obama for science mentoring
Date:7/10/2009

rom SF State went on to complete a doctorate in the sciences. From 2004 to 2007, 21 underrepresented minorities completed doctorates in the sciences, with another 73 expected to complete doctorates in the next five years.

"Too much scientific talent goes unused in the United States because many students have not had appropriate encouragement and opportunity to pursue scientific careers," said Sheldon Axler, dean of the College of Science and Engineering. "Frank Bayliss has created an imaginative array of programs that help students succeed in science, with a particular emphasis on giving students from underrepresented minority groups a chance to have exciting research opportunities. Because of Professor Bayliss' work, many students whose scientific talents would have been lost to our nation are now working on the frontiers of science."

In addition to mentoring students, Bayliss and the SEO have been active in helping to increase the diversity of SF State's science faculty and mentoring junior faculty members. He helps new faculty learn everything from time organization and teaching techniques to securing grants and running lab budgets. Bayliss said he receives phone calls from former students who are now professors at other universities looking for advice in their careers and how to mentor students at their own institutions.

Equating mentoring to coaching, Bayliss said: "I get all the credit, but I'm like the coach with the All-American quarterback and the great team."
