Military Health Systems Research Symposium abstracts due Mar. 15

The Military Health Systems Research Symposium (MHSRS) is the Department of Defense’s premier scientific meeting.  It provides a collaborative environment for military medical care providers with deployment experience, DoD scientists, academia, and industry to meet and exchange information on the unique medical needs of the Warfighter. The theme for the 2019 MHSRS is “Research for Readiness”.  There are four primary presentation focus areas: Warfighter Medical Readiness, Expeditionary Medicine, Warfighter Performance, and Return to Duty.

The deadline for abstract submissions Mar. 15, 2019.The location and date of the 2019 MHSRS are still to be determined.  However, the conference is usually held in early August. More details will be made available later this spring, so be sure to continue to check-up on the MHSRS website.

MRSRS is an excellent opportunity to network with other scientists and garner grant funding from the DoD. If you’re interested in submitting an abstract, the Office of Science and Research can help review your abstract for military relevance and other important details prior to submission. As in years prior, the OSR may be able to provide travel assistance to OHSU researchers whose abstracts are accepted for presentation. Further information on travel support will be available after abstract acceptances are announced at the end of May.
