YOUNG INVESTIGATOR POSTER COMPETITION
In addition to choosing one of the submission options, poster only, oral only, or first preference oral, Young Investigators may elect to enter the Young Investigator’s Poster Competition.

Young Investigators are defined as undergraduates, graduates and post docs. Young Investigators who are chosen to present orally will automatically be entered into the ESCOM Science Foundation Oral Presentation Competition. Three winners will receive cash prizes.

SPECIAL THANKS TO THE ESCOM FOUNDATION
ESCOM Science Foundation, founded by Dr. Bert L. Schram and currently chaired by Mrs. Dr. E.A. Schram, has kindly sponsored three awards to be given to the top three outstanding oral presentations given by young investigators. In addition, the Foundation also sponsors the Dr. Bert L. Schram Young Scientists’ Lunch and Mixer. The American Peptide Society acknowledges this generous contribution, which supports the development and promotion of young aspiring researchers in peptide science.
