Poster Awards

Awards will be given for the best poster presentations by GSA undergraduate and graduate student members. Judges take both scientific merit and clarity of presentation into account. You must be a GSA student member at the time you submit your abstract and must check the option during abstract submission to enter your poster in the competition. You must also be the first and presenting author on the abstract to be eligible for an award. 

Winners will be announced during the conference. PIs and postdocs who are GSA members can indicate during registration if they would like to help with judging.
