BIOL 395 Research Poster

Biology majors/2nd majors taking their second semester of BIOL 395 will be required to prepare a research poster and write a one paragraph abstract (less than 200 words) summarizing their research.  This takes the place of the 10-page paper.  Abstracts are due the last day of classes.  Posters must be up by Noon on Monday.  Posters will remain displayed in the Genome Sciences Building lobby for the entire week.  Note that the lab you are working in may pay to have your poster printed.  If not, you will have to pay to have this done.  The Biology Department will provide each student with the proper adhesive strips to use when attaching your poster to the wall in the Genome Sciences Building.  Due to the large number of posters generated by BIOL 395 students, the Department of Biology Photolab will NOT be able to print ANY undergraduate posters for BIOL 395 Poster Week.  Information on where to get your poster printed can be found in the Poster Printing Locations & Information link below.  Please allow a minimum of 3 week days to get your poster printed.

Fall 2017 – Monday – Friday November, 2017 (days TBA) Posters (40-50 total) will be displayed on the walls of the Genome Sciences building lower lobby all week.  BIOL 395 students will be at their posters Friday afternoon from 2-4 PM to answer your questions about their research.

Spring 2017 – Monday-Friday, April 17-21, 2017  Posters (50-60 total) will be displayed on the walls of the Genome Sciences Building lower lobby all week.

A green-colored BIOL 395 Research Poster application must be completed.  It is due no later than the first day of classes.  These applications are found in 213 Coker.

After six credit hours of BIOL 395, students can continue doing research for credit by signing up for BIOL 495 (pass/fail and 10-page paper required).

For questions about your poster, please contact Dr Blaire Steinwand,
