Poster Awards

Each year at the annual meeting, the ISSCR presents Poster Awards to six Trainee members selected from over 700 eligible posters. The winners receive a $250.00 stipend, a one-year subscription to Cell Stem Cell and Current Protocols in Stem Cell Biology,and complimentary registration to ISSCR's annual meeting the following year.
