Taubman Institute Symposium makes call for abstracts and art

September 21, 2016  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

As part of the 9th annual Taubman Institute Symposium, which will take place on Friday, Oct. 21, the A. Alfred Taubman Medical Research Institute is offering two opportunities for researchers at the University of Michigan.

The first opportunity is a poster presentation contest featuring original basic science, translational, health services or clinical research. Secondly, there will be a scientific art contest showcasing images — any two-dimensional medium such as a photograph, screenshot, original drawing, painting, collage, etc., will be accepted — based on some facet of laboratory work.

The deadline for submissions to both contests is Monday, Oct. 10. Abstracts and art should be emailed to Dr. Stacey Jacoby, PhD, at staceysa@med.umich.edu

The institute is offering cash prizes for winners in each contest. Complete rules and submission requirements can be found online. Participants must be present at the symposium to qualify for prizes.

Posters and art will be displayed beginning at 8:30 a.m. on Oct. 21 in the AAT-BSRB; all are welcome for coffee and networking. Everyone is also invited to the symposium talks from 10 a.m. until noon.  This year’s keynotes will be delivered by 2016 Taubman Prize winners and cancer immunotherapy pioneers Suzanne L. Topalian, MD, and Jedd D. Wolchok, MD, PhD.
