Call for Informational Posters

Wednesday, June 27, 2008

The ASN Program Committee is again soliciting abstracts (300 words or fewer) that contain information about ongoing clinical trials or research services available in core facilities at academic institutions. These abstracts will be displayed in informational poster sessions during the ASN annual meeting in Philadelphia, PA. Submitted abstracts should include a brief background; study goals, hypotheses, or description of available core services; trial inclusion/exclusion recruitment criteria if appropriate; and funding agency. The purpose of these abstracts is to stimulate enrollment in clinical trials and increase utilization of research core facilities. Please do not submit abstracts describing results of clinical studies. Preference will be given to studies and resources supported by government and non-profit agencies. Abstracts should be submitted to no later than Tuesday, August 19, 2008. These abstracts will be reviewed and decision for inclusion made no later than Monday, September 15, 2008.
