Core Facilities Submission Criteria:
Core Facilities posters should be aimed at promoting scientific discovery or enriching the core or laboratory setting. Core Facilities posters must provide data or measurements that support the conclusions. Any poster focused on marketing a core facility or company (e.g. presenting an inventory of services or equipment) will not be accepted.
Recommended Core Facilities poster topics include:
- Development of a novel technique or modification to a previously implemented protocol
- Implementation details of a new workflow, protocol or standard operating procedure
- A quantitative evaluation of a core's impact on the institute it serves
