Poster Session & Abstract:
Thursday, September 15
New to BioBash 2022, CSTM will be hosting a poster session! This event is an opportunity for trainees and job candidates to show off their scientific accomplishments and skills. Our corporate sponsors and 39 North companies will be encouraged to attend and interact with poster presenters as another opportunity for BioBash attendees to network with industry professionals.
Food and drinks will be provided by CSTM and Danforth Center's Innovation Team as part of the 39 North Happy Hour.
Finally, CSTM is happy to announce that there will be at least 3 poster prizes (see below for details on eligibility).
- Poster dimensions should NOT exceed 48" h x 42" w
- Poster topics are up to the poster presenter. For example, presenters may choose to focus on a single research story (traditional conference-poster style) or to provide an overview of multiple research projects and skills.
- Poster prizes are open to all presenters.
- Poster prizes will primarily be in the form of cash prizes. If awardee is unable to accept cash payments due to visa restrictions, the prize can be awarded as a gift card instead.
Abstract submission deadline: End of Day, September 8th, 2022.
September 16, 2022: 4:30 - 6:30 p.m.
