Grant Writing Workshop

Poster Session Guidelines  

Please submit a 300 word description of your current research to be eligible to present your work in poster format at the meeting. The poster is intended to be a work-in-progress and not necessarily a finished product. Faculty will review your poster and make themselves available to discuss your research plans and offer suggestions for next steps. Authors must be registered for the Grant Writing Workshop prior to submission.

Each Scientific Poster will be assigned a number. Each author should look for his/her assigned number before putting up his/her poster. Author’s numbers will be assigned by alphabetical order based on the Author’s institution’s name and specialty.
