Bass Connections Poster Awars

Bass Connections provides opportunities for interdisciplinary and collaborative research throughout the Duke community. Sharing the outcomes of that research, in a way that is accessible to a broad audience, is key to expanding the reach and impact of the research and the program. Through poster presentations, students have an opportunity to communicate in a clear manner important assumptions, processes and conclusions. Through the Bass Connections Poster Awards, Bass Connections aims to recognize students’ efforts to communicate their research beyond the project team.
