A $500 prize will be awarded by the Institute of Aging in each of the following categories: Master’s, Doctoral and Post Doctoral Fellow. Undergraduate students are not eligible. This competition is a value-added feature of the prominent focus on student posters at our conference. All student posters are welcomed as a vital contribution to the scientific program and all accepted submissions are highlighted throughout the program in featured student poster sessions.
