Students: Submit Abstracts for the NEOMED Student Research Symposium

From the Office of Dr. Rebecca German, Vice President of Research:

Dear Students,

On behalf of NEOMED’s Office of Research and Sponsored Programs and Committee for Student Clinical Research, we invite you to submit an abstract for the annual NEOMED Student Research Symposium to be held from 1 to 4 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 18, in the NEW Center Ballroom and Cook Hall.

This is a live event and will include poster presentations and concurrent oral presentations. Please save the date.

The Symposium is an opportunity to disseminate your scholarly work to the greater NEOMED community, and to gain further insights regarding your work from faculty and fellow students. This event will be attended by the NEOMED community, and you will be provided with opportunities for questions and feedback at the conclusion of your poster and oral presentations.

Abstract Submission Requirements

  1. You must be currently enrolled at NEOMED’s College of Medicine, College of Pharmacy, or College or Graduate Studies (including B.M.S. students)
  2. Abstracts may reflect recently completed or ongoing scholarly work. Scholarly work can include research of any form (quantitative, qualitative, theoretical, case reports and community service projects).
  3. Abstracts must be submitted as a Word document which includes the project title, contributing authors with their credentials, compliance approvals such as IACUC and IRB (when applicable), and advisor name and signature in addition to the abstract. Abstract requirements are as follows:
    1. 250-word limit (excluding title and authors), Arial font, size 12
    2. A concise and comprehensive description of the research or project performed. This includes a purpose statement, description of methods or work performed, and conclusions.
    3. Abstracts may be structured (with section titles such as Purpose, Methods, Results, Conclusion) if applicable or unstructured.
    4. Use the following link to submit your abstracts: Abstract Submission Form
  4. Complete the abstract submission form in its entirety and select if you would like to be considered for an oral presentation after committee review.
  5. Only fully completed abstract submission forms and abstracts that meet the qualifications will be considered for inclusion in the program.
  6. It is highly recommended that abstracts are carefully reviewed by a faculty advisor or written with the support of the Writing Center. Abstracts may be slightly edited for purposes of publication in the Abstract Guide.
  7. No more than one abstract, as first author, may be submitted for consideration. A student may be a second/middle author on other abstracts. Only one poster/presentation per student is possible.

Deadline for submission is 11:59 p.m. Friday, Sept. 30.

Please note: Given the tight reviewing schedule, no late abstracts will be considered under any circumstances.

Authors of accepted abstracts will be notified with further event details and presentation instructions by Oct. 16. Presentations will be organized by scholarly categories.
