NIH Record - National Institutes of Health

Postbaccalaureate Poster Day Planned, Apr. 20

Postbac Poster Day is scheduled for Wednesday, Apr. 20 at the Natcher Conference Center from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The keynote address will begin at noon and will be followed by presentation of Postbac Distinguished Mentoring Award(s) to NIH investigators selected by the postbacs. Poster session I will take place from 10 a.m. to noon and poster session II is from 1:30 to 3:30 pm. 

Poster Day provides an opportunity for postbacs to share the research they have been conducting at NIH and at the same time develop scientific communication and networking skills. Posters will be reviewed by teams composed of graduate students, postdocs and staff scientists/clinicians. The authors of the top 20 percent will receive a letter acknowledging their accomplishments.  

Investigators, staff scientists and scientific administrators can make a particularly important contribution to the event by visiting posters and engaging their authors in discussion. For more information, visit
