The FUTURE of U.S. Scientific Innovation

Postdoctoral scholars comprise a significant portion of the workforce in science and technology research, and represent the next generation of young investigators in academia and early career scientists in industry.

Ultimately, postdocs are the main purchasers and users of new laboratory products. Ultimately, postdocs represent tomorrow's leaders who drive global science innovation.The National Postdoctoral Association (NPA) Annual Meeting is the only national venue dedicated to the postdoctoral community. There are several opportunities for sponsorship that will allow corporations, institutions, associations, and societies to connect with postdoctoral researchers in a meaningful way. Your sponsorship will support the meeting, create goodwill, and increase awareness of your name at their organizations.
