CANCER IMAGING IN THE 21ST CENTURY

POSTER COMPETITION

The Comprehensive Cancer Center recognizes junior faculty, postdoctoral fellows, resident trainees, and graduate students for their scientific creativity in cancer research, cancer prevention and control research, and cancer biostatistics/bioinformatics research. Eligible participants may submit an abstract of their original cancer research for presentation as a poster to compete for first, second, and third place cash awards. Posters entered in the competition are evaluated and scored by a panel of judges during Poster Sessions on meeting day.  Awards are presented at the end of the meeting.

Open Category (non-competitive). Posters submitted to the newly created Open Category are included in the meeting abstract book. However, Open Category participants do not participate in the competition and are not eligible for an award at this time.
