John Armstrong Prize for Best Poster

The John B. Armstrong Prize for Best Poster is presented annually to the student who prepares and defends the best poster at the annual spring BIOLOGY POSTER DAY. The posters are judged by two independent researchers in the normal fashion (see Poster Presentation for details). The prize consists of a cash prize of varying amounts.The winner's name will be added to a plaque to be displayed in the Department of Biology.

The John B. Armstrong Prize for Best Poster was presented for the first time in the spring of 2002 and will be presented annually following the Spring poster presentations. The first winner was Benjamin Hibbert for his poster entitled 'Catecholaminergic regulation of GAD mRNA, GABA synthesis, and GtHII release in the goldfish brain'. Ben did his research under the supervision of Dr. Vance Trudeau and Ben has since entered the Faculty of Medicine as a medical student.

A copy of Fida Al Noor Ahmed's poster (2008 Winner of the Armstrong Prize, supervised by Dr. John Arnason) can be found on the website. This poster will also give you a good example for preparing your own poster.
