Welcome to the 2021 CFAES Virtual Research Poster Website!

The Annual Research Poster Competition is open to researchers who have participated in original research conducted while at The Ohio State University, supported by the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences. There are various levels of the competition for undergraduate (BS), graduate MS, and graduate PhD students, as well as postdoctoral scholars, and research staff (Research Assistants/ Associates/ Scientists, or Visiting Scholars that are not currently enrolled in an advanced degree program). You can view the full competition guidelines below:

This webpage has been setup to function as a virtual poster session, allowing our researchers to present their research to you online. You may browse the research posters by competition (using the left-hand menu), or by academic department (using the right-hand menu). Projects are in alphabetical order, by author's first name. If you have any questions about the virtual poster competition, please contact Kayla Arnold.
