17th Annual NIH Graduate Student Research Symposium - Guidelines for Posters

Posters will be virtual this year!  Presenters will be allowed to share their screen that contains their poster in a single pane.  You will want to practice zooming in on specific areas of your poster, using a cursor or annotation tool to highlight areas of interest and be sure to practice presenting your poster in five minutes!  


Posters will be judged for the NGSRAs based on the following criteria:
Poster Organization - visuals and text are easy to read and logically organized
Poster Content - Significance: the value of the finding to its respective field
Poster Content - Involvement: student's involvement in the research presented
Poster Presentation - Clarity: how clearly the information is presented
Poster Presentation - Significance: how well the student understands his/her research and puts it into a broader perspective
