Undergraduate Student Caucus and Poster Competition

This free session will help undergraduate and postbaccalaureate students explore various educational and career options in the cancer field, and provide an opportunity for students to present their research and compete for prizes.

Winners of the Undergraduate Student Caucus and Poster Competition at the AACR Annual Meeting will be presented with Margaret Foti Foundation Undergraduate Prizes for Cancer Research, which reward excellence in research conducted and presented by undergraduate students.

Learn more about Dr. Margaret Foti.

Judging is based on the student abstract, research content of the poster and on the ability of the student to effectively answer questions about the work during the poster presentation.

The First Place Foti Prize carries an award of $1,500 towards participation in the following year's AACR Annual Meeting. Second ($500) and third place ($250) prizes are also awarded.
