Schedule to come

Top Poster Tours

Take a guided tour through the 2021 Top Poster Award winners. These moderated, 45-minute virtual “walks” will provide a fun, curated experience for attendees to learn more about 5-7 high-quality posters in one of the following categories: genetic testing and red blood cell immunogenicity, patient outcomes and COVID-19, and donor health and product characteristics.

There will be three poster tours during the 2021 AABB Annual Meeting, occurring daily from 1:30 - 2:15 p.m. (ET). These tours will provide a brief overview of each of the selected abstracts by the author (1-2 minutes), followed by a 5-minute interactive question-and-answer period among the moderators, abstract authors, and the virtual audience before moving on to the next poster. All top posters will be available to audience members to review before the tours start on the Annual Meeting platform.
