Congratulations to the journal-selected poster prizewinners


Thank you for the wide range of excellent posters at FEBS 2019, and well done to...

In recognition of the contribution of posters to the event, FEBS Press journals and the Biochemical Journal awarded daily mini-prizes and, from these, announced overall winners at the Closing Ceremony.

From a shortlist of posters chosen by journal editors on the basis of submitted abstracts, a panel of jurors viewed the displayed posters and talked to the presenters. They looked for high-quality and exciting research presented in a clear and appealing manner. The overall winners selected by the journals were:
