The prizes for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Graduate Student and Postdoctoral Scientist are $300, $200 and $100, respectively. The Undergraduate poster award prizes are $150 for 1st place and $50 for 2nd place. Additionally, the first-place winner of both the graduate student competition and the postdoctoral scientist competition may receive a travel award to the next Experimental Biology meeting, and will serve as representatives on the division's executive committee for the following year. A Graduate Student-Postdoc Poster Competition and Student-Mentor Mixer will be held, during which the posters will be judged, and winners identified.

The date and time of this meeting will be announced in advance. The awards will be announced at the Division for Toxicology mixer. The winning posters will be presented at the joint mixer to be held in conjunction with the Division for Drug Metabolism. This provides a large and interested audience for students and postdocs, and is a great opportunity for them to network.
