Preparing a research poster

A research poster is a simplified, visual representation of your work that highlights major achievements and discoveries. Effective communication of science through a poster is an art, and so many researchers find it challenging. Here​​ we provide a simple guideline that may help Postdoctoral Fellows improve their posters. We also offer one-on-one coaching on both poster preparation and presentation.
