Postdoctoral Research Symposium

May 5, 2022

The Georgetown University Postdoctoral Association (GUPDA) and the Office of Postdoctoral Development are hosting the annual GU Postdoctoral Research Symposium on May 5. This event highlights the excellent research and scholarship that our postdoctoral community is producing. Postdocs will present their research through oral and poster presentations.


The GU Postdoctoral Research Symposium is open to all current postdocs affiliated with Georgetown University or MedStar Georgetown University Hospital.

10 a.m. — Oral Presentations over Zoom

2:30 p.m. — Poster Presentations in Preclinical Science Building Hallway C

The deadline for abstract submission has passed. View abstracts for this symposium in the Abstract Book.


Once you receive an email from the GU PDA confirming the acceptance of your abstract for a poster presentation, you will need to ensure that your poster is prepared. Keep in mind that like your abstract, your poster and poster presentation should be geared toward a general audience.

If you have a poster already printed from a recent meeting, you are welcome to use it. Please send us the dimensions of your poster so we can reserve adequate space for you. If you are creating a new poster, we will assist in the cost of poster printing. You will receive details about poster specifications and deadlines in your confirmation email.

As we draw closer to the GU Postdoctoral Research Symposium, you will receive further instructions regarding poster placement, evaluations, and schedules for attending your poster.

Oral Presentations

The oral presentation sessions will consist of a series of 15-minute talks with PowerPoints, followed by 5 minutes for questions and transition. If you are interested in presenting your research in an oral format, be sure to indicate this during abstract submission. Only a select number of abstracts will be chosen for oral presentations.

Oral presentations should be geared to a general audience.


Networking Reception

The Networking Reception will bring together current Georgetown postdocs, faculty and graduate students as well as community members from various industries in the D.C. metro area. Postdocs can use this as an opportunity to make connections and learn more about career opportunities. 


We are seeking faculty, graduate students, staff, and postdocs to give feedback and scores for oral and poster presentations.
