Using the supplied template the poster must include:

- Showcase the laboratory techniques and safeguards available in Villanova laboratories which prevent such an incident here.
- Conclude with lessons learned and/or suggestions toward continuing safe lab practices.
All submission must be in emailed to Dr. Matt O’Reilly (firstname.lastname@example.org) by April 12th, 2021

Posters will be on display on the Department of Chemistry safety webpage and will be voted on by members of the Villanova community. Prizes will be awarded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place entries; in addition, we will print the top three for display in relevant departments.
