The University of Houston College of Pharmacy provides its students, staff, and faculty with the ability to print research posters for presentation at meetings and symposia. The college's Research Poster Production Center is housed in HB2 3010 and is operated by the Office of Information Technology using a 42" large-format printer. The Research Poster Production Center is supported by a grant from Healix®.

*PowerPoint limits a slide's maximum width to 56 inches. Slides for templates with widths larger than 56 inches are actually created with dimensions half those shown for the final production size. For example, a poster template shown with the dimension 36" H x 72" W would show dimensions of 18" H x 36" W under Page Setup in PowerPoint. When printed, it is enlarged 200% to achieve the final production size.
