ISTT BEST POSTER AWARDS
The International Society for Transgenic Technologies (ISTT), with the generous sponsorship of Charles River Laboratories International, Inc. (CRL), has established the ISTT BEST POSTER AWARDS that will be given at the Transgenic Technology (TT) Meetings.
.The ISTT Best Poster Awards recognize outstanding work presented by participants at Transgenic Technology (TT) meetings. The ISTT Best Poster Awards are generously sponsored by Charles River Laboratories International, Inc. (CRL). Winners of the ISTT Best Poster Awards will be selected from all posters presented at the TT meeting. Poster judges will be appointed by the TT Poster Awards Committee, and may be composed of members of the ISTT Board of Directors, members of the Local Organizing Committee and any other willing ISTT member. The number of Posters to be awarded may vary from TT meeting to TT meeting. In general, the judges will choose the three best posters, and may establish selection categories that better represent the scope of the work presented. The scientific and technical quality of the poster, the novelty of the results, and the appearance of the poster are some of the criteria that will be considered by the judges.
