The Josh Wand First Place Poster Award in Biophysics and the Kate Ferguson First Place Poster Award in Biochemistry will be awarded to the top posters by graduate students in each category. These awards were established to honor the past two BMB graduate group chairs. Second and third place prizes will also be awarded in each category.

Eligible posters are those with a graduate student as the first author. Winners will be selected by first and second year BMB students.
