First-Annual Poster Session

New at the 2003 conference, the first-annual Labs21 Poster Session showcased the capabilities and innovative designs of the world's most dynamic laboratories and how they have embraced the Labs21 Approach. Posters were on display throughout the entire conference so attendees could browse the information at their leisure. Authors were on hand during designated hours to answer questions.

Presenters' abstracts and additional information about their topic has been posted online pending permission from the authors. Posters are organized alphabetically by author's last names.

Be sure to view the complete conference agenda to find additional conference activities and sessions.

*Please note that we are in the process of making the presentations accessible to those requiring assistive technology devices. Fully accessible presentations will be posted as we complete this process. The content and general nature of the presentations will remain the same.
