SLAS Education: Moving with the Times and the Targets

The educational priorities of SLAS members are a bit like shifting sands. There was a time when the Zymate 1 transformed the analytical laboratory which led to incredible advances in laboratory automation.  Decades later scientists using cutting edge technology mapped the human genome. Since then, topics like 3D cell culture, gene-editing, personalized medicine and super resolution microscopy have risen to the top of many great minds.

Each year at the SLAS International Conference and Exhibition, students, graduate students, post-doctoral associates and junior faculty have the opportunity to share their achievements, gain valuable exposure and win a cash prize in the SLAS Student Poster Competition. The entries are many, the work strong and the job of selecting the top three difficult. Poster judges evaluate a presenter's ability to explain key concepts, respond to questions and demonstrate enthusiasm for their work. The top three student poster authors receive cash awards of $500 each.
