**Abstract:** The role of Poisson transversals in Poisson geometry is analogous to the one played by symplectic submanifolds in symplectic geometry, and by transverse submanifolds in foliation theory. They are defined as submanifolds that intersect the symplectic leaves transversally and symplectically. In this talk I will explain how the entire "local Poisson geometry" around a Poisson transversal is encoded by that of the Poisson transversal. This is joint work with Pedro Frejlich.
