Elsevier Best Student Poster and Platform Presentations
Share |

Awards are given to the Best Student Platform Presentation and Best Student Poster Presentation in Toxicogenomics at SETAC North America Annual Meetings. In order to qualify for consideration, the senior author must be a SETAC member and be a student or recent graduate reporting on research conducted as a student, but not postdoctoral research.

Participants will be evaluated independently by the selected evaluators using a standardized score sheet. Candidates will also be ranked. The awards will be based upon the numerical results of the reviews.

Platform presentations will be judged based upon the presentation material and the candidates' response to questions during the presentation time only in a manner commensurate with the general conference's Best Student evaluations. Similarly, for poster presentations, only the poster itself and conversation with the author during his/her time at the poster will be used in the judging process. In this award sub-category, there will be one primary winner in each of the platform and poster presentation categories.

As a result of the sponsorship of this award, funds are available for cash awards as well as plaques for the award winners.Each first-place awardee will also receive a year's subscription to the Elsevier publication Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology for the first place award recipients. The amount of funding is at the discretion of the SETAC North America Executive Director and the Awards Committee, based upon the available funds.
