As part of the “Student Night” Program, interested students are encouraged to present their research.  Poster presentations will be judged by the Awards Committee prior to Student Night. Monetary awards ($500 – first place, $300 – secondary place and $200 – third place) will be presented to the top three presenters at the Student Night Meeting on February 9, 2017.  All students participating in the Poster presentation at the February meeting are invited to attend the dinner that follows, free of charge. Filing deadline for the poster abstracts is January 6, 2017. Poster Judging will be held the afternoon of Student Night (February 9).

All reasonable material costs associated with preparation of the posters will be reimbursed by the NYIFT. Reimbursement of expenses will be handled through the Food Science Club. Receipts for poster suppliers are required.

2016 Poster Presentation Night

The CNJ/NYIFT Student Night was held on February 10, 2016 at the Heldrich Hotel in New Brunswick, NJ which is conveniently located near the Rutgers University campus. Almost 75 people attended this event; many were students who came to hear Dr. George Carman’s presentation the fat-regulating enzyme phosphatidic acid phosphatase and view fellow student poster presentations. We had 19 poster presentations covering many different subject areas. If you missed this year’s Student Night, you missed a great event!

Each year, CNJIFT & NYIFT hold a joint meeting where the focus is on students. At this meeting, Graduate and Undergraduate students present their research in poster format. The meeting provides a unique opportunity for members in industry to see future professionals in food science more closely and also gain an appreciation of exciting new directions in food science education. During this meeting, poster presentations are judged by the NYIFT Awards Committee and the top three presenters receive monetary awards. This year the Committee had 20 presentations to judge and it wasn’t an easy task! Also, the committee felt that an Undergraduate did an excellent job on their poster presentation and again this year, because of this student’s exceptional poster, a $100 award was presented.
