Selection Criteria:

Abstracts will be graded by the conference Chairs on clarity of presentation, quality of research methods and general interest to an audience of investigators and clinicians.


The first author (trainee/attendee) will be notified by Friday, February 7, 2020, of acceptance for presentation and scholarship award to attend the meeting. Additional forms will follow.
