Symposium Awards

Past Postdoc Appreciation Week Symposium Award Winners

Annually, the UWPA hold a postdoc research symposium to coincide with National Postdoc Appreciation Week. The symposium showcases research from postdocs across disciplines, to highlight the tremendous work done by postdocs to support science and research on campus. In addition, it serves as an opportunity for postdocs to meet one another and socialize at the reception after the symposium. Currently, a 5-min Blitz Talk competition is held, and two postdocs are chosen to receive travel awards. One award is based on judges scores of the postdoc talks, and the other award is a people’s choice award, voted on by the postdocs at the presentations. Listed here are previous winners of the travel awards, who presented outstanding research during the symposium. Congratulations to all the winners, and we look forward to more great work in the future!
