2012 GSO Poster Session and Sigma Xi Abstract Competition
UT Southwestern Graduate School is pleased to announce this year’s winners of the 2011 Graduate Student Organization Poster Session and the 43rd Annual Sigma Xi Abstract Competition. The purpose of the poster session was to give graduate students an informal venue to share their research with the UTSW community. The abstract competition’s purpose was to encourage graduate students to write a concise abstract of their research to where the objectives of the project were clear to a non-expert in the field. Each competition received a total of 70 entries each.
