Students/trainees recognized for outstanding posters

ARVO selected the first Members-in-Training (MIT) Outstanding Poster Award recipients at ARVO 2012. The awards recognizes exceptional poster presentations at the ARVO Annual Meeting in each of the 13 ARVO Scientific Sections and the 4 Cross-Sectional Groups. (This year there were no posters submitted in the Low Vision Group.)

Applications for the MIT Outstanding Poster Award are accepted during abstract submission in the fall. Up to five finalist posters in each section and cross-sectional group are selected by the Annual Meeting Program Committee. Posters selected for final scoring display an "MIT Outstanding Poster Award Finalist" sign on their poster board at the Annual Meeting and are scored during their presentation by a panel of judges from the MIT Committee on the following: clarity of the presentation, overall appearance of the poster and scientific merit.

Award recipients are notified following the Annual Meeting and receive a $100 cash prize. Congratulations to the following 2012 awardees:
