PRINTING YOUR POSTER:

 If you choose to have the School print out your poster, contact Christopher Cheechov, at the Anatomy, Physiology and Cell Biology Imaging Lab - 1218 VM3B,  cjcheechov@ucdavis.edu  (530-752-8551). 

Printing:  Appointments should be made 2 weeks in advance of printing date with Christopher Cheechov.  He will need a DaFIS account number or Billing ID for payment at time of printing.  This will be provided by your mentor, who is already aware of this research cost (as stated on their mentor letters which were signed as part of your applications and also stated on the STAR website ). The cost is approximately $72 for a 36" x 48" poster with a white background and color pictures, plus a $6 charge for the poster tubes (anything larger will cost more and is not necessary). To keep actual printing simple and expedient, posters should have a white background, with no background pictures or gradient color schemes or complex graphics behind the data.
