Student Initiatives

Student Poster Prizes

A number of poster presentation prizes are awarded at each conference (see Past Award Winners page). Each poster has at least one judge allocated, who will usually be an invited international or local speaker. Each judge has approximately 7-9 posters to assess. The judge will assess each poster presentation on scientific content, visual clarity and quality of verbal communication. The best poster presentation as determined by each judge will be awarded a poster prize.

Student & Invited Speaker Lunch

Student delegates are invited to attend the ‘Meet and Greet’ with Invited Speakers on Tuesday 12th February. This function provides an excellent opportunity for students to meet world leading international and local protein scientists. We understand that it can be very intimidating to ask questions of such eminent scientists or to divert them from in depth conversations, so as with the 2018 function, a number of early career researchers will be available to facilitate discussions, hopefully making this an enjoyable and rewarding experience for everyone. Make sure you come along with some questions in mind for the speakers. Please note this event is free but is often booked out, so make your selection in the addons section of your online dashboard as soon as possible!
