Poster Information

Participants are responsible for printing their own posters prior to Discovery Day. There are three options for printing your poster:

Center for Scientific Communication and Outreach

All posters submitted for printing to the Center for Scientific Communication and Outreach after the stated deadline will be printed on a first come, first served basis. We will try our best to have them printed before Discovery Day; however, we experience a very high volume at this time of year and cannot guarantee this, so please try to submit your posters as early as possible.

Payment for printing posters is due at the time of pickup in the form of department fund/org codes, cash, or check. Credit cards are not accepted. A $20 rush charge will be applied to posters needed in under 24 hours. Price is based on delivery time of the final version of the poster.

All posters must be picked up from New College Building, Room 18302. Delivery to Queen Lane is available upon request for a $10 charge. Posters delivered to Queen Lane will need to be picked up from Room G46 by 8:30 a.m. on Discovery Day, October 8.

A PowerPoint template for the 40x48 size with the Drexel University College of Medicine approved logo can be found here: (template with a College of Medicine logo). Please do not use the College "Studium Et Inventio" Seal, which is reserved for documents such as diplomas.
