So I have been doing basic science/bench research for my mentor for about a year now, and have generated some data here and there... nothing too groundbreaking. So far I only have one poster presentation to show for it. Well my mentor told me that she included me on an abstract that I believe was just submitted for a conference coming up in a few months. Later in the conversation she referred to it as including me in the "poster." So basically my questions are.... what exactly does that mean? Is it a poster or an abstract? Or both? How would one include something like that on a CV? I think I am research mentally challenged... so thanks!!!
