Poster Guidelines 

A title page with presenter, mentor and research program listed, as well as a keywords page with authors and a link to the electronic abstract will be provided by the Masonic Cancer Center at your poster site. 


In addition to these two provided sheets, you may use up to FOUR pages (8½ x 11) to create your poster. We recommend using an easily readable font size and landscape orientation. Suggested information layout is to have a Hypothesis and Approach page, two data pages and a Conclusions/Next Steps page.

You will need to print your four pages and bring to the symposium. The title page and key words page will be provided at your poster site. Detailed information regarding your poster location, set up timing, etc. will be emailed to you in March.
