Since 2002, NIEHS has held "Science Days"—so scientists could share their work, explore collaborations, and have their excellence recognized. "Science Days is, in part, a training exercise. It gives trainees a forum to develop their techniques in giving poster and oral presentations," said Joel Abramowitz, special assistant to the NIEHS scientific director. "No other institute has the breadth of the types of science that we do here, so the trainees have to explain themselves to a broad audience."

During this annual event, fellows have the opportunity to win $1,000 travel awards for 'Best Poster' or 'Best Oral Presentation.'
