THE STUDENT AWARDS
Students can enter competition for the best platform and poster presentation award during BioEM 2020 meeting.
To be considered, the student must be enrolled in an academic institution at the undergraduate or graduate level. Post-doctoral fellows are not eligible to participate in the student awards.
