Pro Tip

  • The title of the poster is very important to draw attention, like a good news headline.

  • There are ppt poster templates available from various sites. 2.

  • Abstract is important to attract an audience to review your poster presentation in more detail.

  • Make it simple, easy to read, organized and presentable.

  • Add patient pic/story or a patient perspective as it will make the poster more attractive.

Questions from the Audience

  1. Can you recommend a specific software tool or design/creative site that might be more user friendly or cost-effective in creating a scientific/research poster?
  2. What should a poster ideally have for a rare disease foundation that is very new and has no patient registry or data? There is no animal model but we do foresee this in future.
  3. Could you please send us an example of an advocacy group poster?
  4. How do we share the poster to the target audience to get the attention from the research realm?
  5. What about a White Paper? Is there value in presenting this as a poster, especially now that these are viewed virtually? Or is this a challenging space for so much copy and perhaps less graphic?
  6. Are there scenarios where more than 1 page of posters are welcome? Or is it always a one page limit?
  7. Does presenting a poster at a conference elevate the work an organization does? Does it help improve its visibility to the industry and larger research.
