Postbac Poster Day 2020 Is Going Virtual
NIH has been forced to cancel the face-to-face 2020 Postbac Poster Day due to the coronavirus outbreak. However, virtual Poster Day has been scheduled for the end of April. More than 875 postbacs have registered to present. The virus outbreak has led to the cancellation of many important events for the NIH community. We invite you to help us make sure this event, rather than being cancelled, is the best Postbac Poster Day ever.
Postbac Distinguished Mentor Awards will be announced on the OITE website on Apr.30.
Poster Day provides an opportunity for postbacs to share the research they have been conducting at NIH and develop their scientific communication and networking skills. Posters will be reviewed by teams 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, other trainees and scientific administrators can make an important contribution to poster day by assisting the postbacs with poster preparation and participating in the virtual event (watch for email instructions).
