Undergraduate Poster Competition

Undergraduate Poster Competition

On Saturday, March 25, nearly 300 undergraduate students will present their research in the 27th annual Undergraduate Poster Competition.

Each year, the competition kicks off the ASBMB annual meeting and provides an opportunity for undergraduate researchers to practice their presentation skills and receive constructive feedback from a panel of judges to help them prepare for the presentations they will give later on during the main meeting. Undergraduates selected to compete will be organized into one of six topic categories, with a winner and three honorable mentions awarded in each category. All competitors will receive written feedback to help improve their presentations.

To participate, an undergraduate must submit an abstract to #DiscoverBMB as a primary author by the Nov. 30 deadline. In the abstract-submission form, they must indicate an interest in participating in the competition. Due to space limitations, not all who are interested in competing will be selected. Competitors will be notified in January.
