ADAA offers annual poster awards at the Annual Conference in several categories.


ADAA is excited to announce the Poster Awards Program. There is no additional application process (and applicants do not need to be ADAA members) to be considered for this award. Winning and Honorable Mention Recipients are selected by the annual Conference Committee from all accepted poster submissions in four categories:

  • Best poster from an early career professional;
  • Best poster from a student, postdoc, or trainee;
  • Best poster on a topic related to diversity issue or an underrepresenting population;
  • Poster most related to the conference theme.

For 2024, eight awardees were selected from 600 poster submissions and also gave an oral presentation in our Poster Spotlight sessions during the Boston conference. ADAA Congratulates the following posters on their recognition:
