 DISS2024 Poster Session Information 

Welcome to our poster session—an integral part of the conference designed for presenters to display their research and interact with attendees. This session covers a wide array of topics, including quantitative methods and their applications in pharmaceutical development, clinical research, and biomedical studies. Participants can engage in one of three formats:

  1. Poster Presentation Session (11:30am 1:30pm on April 4, 2024)
    All submitted posters will give a traditional interactive poster presentation.
  2. Poster Lightning Talk Session (3:00pm  5:00pm on April 4, 2024)
    Selected posters will deliver brief and focused talks on their posters’ key points.
  3. Early Career Poster Award Competition
    This will offer an exciting opportunity for students and postdoctoral researchers to gain recognition for their work.

We invite all participants to explore these dynamic formats and contribute to the rich scientific dialogue they foster.

*The symposium registration fee will be waived for all participants of poster sessions. The associated promo code will be sent to participants.
