Student and New Investigator
The Education, Student and New Investigator Affairs Committee invites all students and new investigators to submit abstracts for either poster or oral presentations. Your submission will automatically be entered in the Best Presentation/Poster Competition. Posters presented by students and new investigators will have special identification for judging.
Four first prize presentation awards will typically be given:
1. Best oral presentation by a student.
2. Best oral presentation by a new investigator.
3. Best poster presentation by a student.
4. Best poster presentation by a new investigator.
Four, second place awards for each of the presentations listed above will also be given.
Award recipients will receive a monetary award. New investigators are highly encouraged to submit a paper to the EMGS Journal, Environmental and Molecular Mutagenesis, which sponsors the awards. To be considered for the award, the abstract must be submitted and presented by the student or new investigator.
