NIH Virtual Postbaccalaureate Poster Day 2021 will take place Tuesday, Apr. 27-Thursday, Apr. 29 and will be held on WebEx. There will be more than 120 poster sessions each with 5-7 poster presenters. Sessions will take place over 3 days and are organized into 4 timeslots: 9-10:30 a.m., 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m., 1-2:30 p.m. and 3-4:30 p.m. The event program book and presentation schedule will be available on the event web page by Apr. 9. 

Poster Day provides an opportunity for postbacs to share the research they have been conducting at NIH and at the same time develop their scientific communication and networking skills. Posters will be reviewed by teams composed of graduate students, postdocs and staff scientists/clinicians. 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 by visiting posters and engaging authors in discussion. For more information, visit
