AGT Student Research Award

"Student members enrolled in approved cytogenetics or molecular programs are invited to submit abstracts for the Student Research Award. This award is presented to the recipient at each year's Annual Meeting of the Association of Genetic Technologists. The entries are submitted to the AGT Executive Office, which then forwards the abstracts to a panel of Association members. The winner is selected by this panel based on a scored evaluation of the submitted abstracts. All other participants are invited to present a poster at the annual meeting." - AGT
