Deadline extended: Research Week abstracts due March 10

The deadline to submit an abstract to present at OHSU Research Week has been extended to Monday, March 10.

All OHSU students, faculty, fellows, and research staff are invited to submit an abstract for either a 10-minute oral or poster presentation. Research Week is a great opportunity to practice your presentation skills and meet colleagues from different departments and programs. Abstracts that have previously been presented at other meetings may be submitted for Research Week.

  • Oral presentations will be grouped into symposia by category, Monday through Thursday, May 5-8. Researchers of all levels may present within the same session. Limited space is available for students to present in a student-only session on Tuesday, May 6. Each speaker has 10 minutes to present and 5 minutes at the end for questions.
  • Poster sessions will take place Monday through Thursday in the Old Library Great Hall and Richard Jones Hall Atrium. Poster dimensions are limited to 4’x6′.

Visit the Research Week Call for Abstracts page for complete instructions on how to submit.
