The Sue Treagus Prize is awarded annually to the best poster presented by a student (undergraduate or postgraduate) at the Annual Meeting. The student must also be the first author and presenting largely their own original research. The winner is decided by a panel of invited judges.
Previously the Best Student Poster Prize, the TSG committee and members unanimously agreed to the renaming of the award to the Sue Treagus Prize at the TSG 2015 AGM (held in Edinburgh, January 2015).
