Student Excellence Award
Annual BioInterface Symposia each include a Student Poster Contest. Undergraduate and graduate students submit abstracts to the BioInterface Student Poster Contest Chair, and those students present their poster at the Symposium. The Poster Award Committee selects the best poster, and the winner receives the Student Excellence Award and a monetary prize during the symposium Awards Session.
