Business casual attire encouraged.

Travel Awards for Best Poster Presentations

Posters may feature work previously presented, planned to be presented at other local or national meetings, as well as works in progress (including experimental designs and preliminary results). Postdocs who do not yet have research at Pitt warranting a poster submission are also encouraged to attend.
