“I am particularly happy that we have a person with Don’s experience, educational insight and professionalism to succeed Bob Keller,” said Alan Lamborn, vice provost for Undergraduate Affairs. “Bob has not only served as director longer than anyone other than Willard Eddy, who founded the program in 1957, he has been instrumental in guiding the program through a series of important curricular innovations and growing the program to historically unprecedented levels. In all these ways, Bob has set the standard for leadership at a very high level. In Don Mykles, we have found a person who has the ability to be a worthy successor.”

Mykles has been a faculty member at CSU since 1985, serving in the Biology, Molecular, Cellular and Integrative Neurosciences Program, the Cell and Molecular Biology Program, and Natural Sciences Program.

He has received multiple awards for his teaching, mentoring, and research including the National Science Foundation Young Investigator, Fulbright Scholar at University of Heidelberg, Distinguished Research Fellow at the UC Davis Bodega Marine Laboratory, Outstanding Honors Academic Advisor, and the College of Natural Science Excellence in Mentoring Undergraduate Research Award.
