BSPP Plant Health Club ‘Designing Effective Conference Posters’

August 13, 2024 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm


BSPP Plant Health Club ‘Preparing for PPATH2024’

A series of Plant Health Club sessions – helping plant pathologists get the most out of the annual BSPP meeting and other conferences.

‘Designing Effective Conference Posters’

A poster can be your most effective networking tool at a conference – but how do you create a poster that effectively advertises your work and encourages interactions? How do you create posters that are accessible, engaging and informative? In this Plant Health Club session we will discuss the principles of effective poster design.

This is session 2 in the ‘Preparing for PPATH2024’ series.

Presented by Gail Preston, University of Oxford and BSPP President.

Prof. Gail Preston

Prof. Gail Preston is a Lecturer in Plant-Microbe Interactions, Director of the BBSRC-funded Oxford Interdisciplinary Bioscience Doctoral Training Partnership at the University of Oxford and Deputy Director of the University of Oxford’s Doctoral Training Centre. https://preston.web.ox.ac.uk/

She developed a fascination for plant pathology while studying Natural Sciences at the University of Cambridge. She studied for her doctorate under the inspiring mentorship of Prof. Alan Collmer at Cornell University, where she began to ask questions about the biology of plant pathogens that still inform her research today. How do environmental factors regulate pathogenicity and virulence mechanisms? How do pathogens manipulate the microenvironment inside host tissues? How does the environment inside and outside plants affect disease development?
