Young Investigator Awards:
At the biennial American Peptide Symposium, young investigators may elect to enter the Young Investigator’s Poster Competition. Young Investigators are defined as undergraduates, graduates and post docs. A select group of participants are chosen to present orally and will automatically be entered into the ESCOM Science Foundation Oral Presentation Competition. Cash prizes are awarded to the winners.
