PhD Translational Research Competition
PhD Students and Postdoctoral Fellows are invited to submit research abstracts in the PhD Translational Research Competition to be held in conjunction with the Annual Meeting of the Florida Chapter of the American College of Cardiology. See eligibility requirements below.
Abstracts may represent work in progress or may have been previously submitted for publication or presentation at a national meeting in 2024. Further, abstracts submitted in this competition are not precluded from submission for future publication or presentation. The PhD Translational Research Competition is part of a regional meeting and, clearly, will not preclude the PhD Student or Postdoctoral Fellow from submitting the abstract in a future endeavor. Please note a maximum of three submissions will be considered per first author. If more than three are submitted, only the first three submissions will be reviewed. Abstracts are to be submitted via Oxford Abstracts by May 3, 2024. Paper and emailed copies will not be accepted.
All PhD Students or Postdoctoral Fellows are eligible to enter the competition who are enrolled in a training program in Florida. (Those with an MD/MBBS but who are not in a Florida CV medicine fellowship training program are also eligible.) Medical students are not eligible for this competition and any submissions found to be made by them will be automatically disqualified.
Review, Selection and Notification
Submissions will be reviewed by a Chapter panel of cardiologists and PhD scientists. The top scoring abstract in the Translational Research Competition will be invited to give an oral presentation in the Translational Research breakout session on Saturday afternoon, August 10. Selected abstracts will be chosen for poster gallery on Saturday morning, August 10. Presenters will be notified on or after June 5, 2024.
PhD Students and Postdoctoral fellows entering the competition must have significantly participated in the research endeavor (to be confirmed by their program).
