mESC-IS has two awards. One is the best poster award which is given to young researchers whose poster in terms of content, quality of research and presentations are extraordinary. The award winners, in addition to getting their certificate, are exempt for registration fee for the subsequent mESC-IS symposium. The other is newly inaugurated Yener Kuru Young Researchers Award. This award will be given to researchers less than 32 years of age and will be selected among participants of the symposium who either made an oral or poster presentation during the symposium.
