Poster Awards

Awards will be given for the best poster presentations at the in-person meeting by GSA undergraduate and graduate student members. Judges take both scientific merit and clarity of presentation into account. You must be the first AND presenting author on the abstract to be eligible for an award. You must also 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.

Winners will be announced during the conference. All candidates must participate in the live Q&A for their poster to be eligible for an award. PIs and postdocs who are GSA members can indicate during registration if they would like to help with judging.
