Clean out Your Freezer Month

Dear Colleagues,

In accordance with the CSU Biosafety Stewardship Initiative, October is “Clean out Your Freezer” month at CSU! We are pleased to announce that this year’s Biosafety Stewardship Initiative Poster Contest winner is Colleen Brents, a Graduate Research Assistant from the Ergonomics Lab in the Department of Environmental and Radiological Health Sciences. Please join me in thanking and congratulating her for her efforts. View the winning poster.

I now urge you to continue to be good stewards of biosafety and to clean out and inventory your laboratory freezers. The first three labs who submit evidence that they have recently cleaned out their freezers will receive a token of appreciation. Submissions and/or questions should be sent to: More information on things to consider while cleaning out your freezer can be found here. Thank you for your continued support in this matter.

October is also National Biosafety Month! Stay tuned for more information regarding this and additional CSU Biosafety Stewardship Initiative activities.

Best regards,

Chaoping Chen, PhD
Associate Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
