BDQ Young Scientist Poster Awards

Description of   "BDQ Young Scientist Poster Awards"

The new open access journal Biomolecular Detection and Quantification (BDQ) is proud to sponsor three "BDQ Young Scientist Poster Awards" at the qPCR & NGS 2015 event.
The posters will be evaluated by an international jury on the basis of originality of the approach; quality of the work (e.g. appropriate methodology, interpretation of results, conclusiveness); quality of the presentation (e.g. clarity, response to questions); and self-reliance and independence (not one of co-authors, but the most active, if more than one author).

Eligible for the BDQ Young Scientist Poster Award:  The contest is open to students and early career scientists.

Award Presentation:  BDQ Editor-in-Chief Stephen Bustin will award the three poster prizes on Wednesday afternoon directly after the lunch break March 25, 2015.
  1. BDQ Young Scientist Poster Award - First Prize             The winner is awarded 700 Euros and a free submission to BDQ
  2. BDQ Young Scientist Poster Award – Second Prize       The winner is awarded 200 Euros and a free submission to BDQ
  3. BDQ Young Scientist Poster Award – Third Prize            The winner is awarded 100 Euros and a free submission to BDQ
