RECETOX Student Best Poster Award
On June 2, 2020, RECETOX announced the winners of the first "Best Poster Award" for the best poster presented at the new Ph.D. conference. The winners were announced by prof. Luděk Bláha, in a hybrid event in which about half of the participants were present in the lecture room and half online due to the current situation.
The poster session this year was unique. Instead of meeting at the poster boards, the event took place entirely online. Furthermore, this time, the posters were not evaluated by the academic/research staff, but rather by the students, whose task was not only to select the best posters in the given category but also to provide relevant feedback and recommendations.
In all, 51 posters were evaluated and were grouped according to the year in which the students were in. The first group included 1st-2nd year students, while the second group included students from 3rd year and onward.
The winners of the 2020 poster session are:
Zuzana Nováková with a poster: Toxicity does not vanish into thin air
Eva Konečná with a poster: Early Childhood Resistome Development
and Luděk Sehnal with the poster: Hunt for the Antarctic Treasure
Congratulations to the winners and we look forward to the next Ph.D. conference.
