Young Investigator Oral Abstract Presentations

ASM Membership is not required to submit an abstract; however it is required if you would like to apply for or request a Minority Award or a Student Travel Grant. Submit your abstract to be considered for an oral presentation. Select afternoon symposia at asm2015 will include four 15-minute oral presentations from submitted abstracts of graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and assistant professors.


Here’s how it works:

  1. During the abstract submission process, select yes if you meet the criteria of a Young Investigator (you must be a graduate student, post doctoral student or an assistant professor).
  2. Also during the abstract submission process, select yes to indicate that you would like your abstract to be considered for oral presentation.
  3. Choose the session(s) to which you would like to have your abstract submitted.
  4. The session conveners will review the accepted abstracts and notify those that have been selected.


Please Note: You must first be selected for a poster presentation in order to be considered for a Young Investigator Oral Abstract Presentation. If you are not selected for an Oral Presentation you will still present a Poster.
