Young Investigator Oral Abstract Presentations
Submit your abstract to be considered for an oral presentation. Select afternoon symposia at asm2014 will include four 15-minute oral presentations from submitted abstracts of graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and assistant professors.
Here’s how it works:
- During the abstract submission process, select yes if you meet the criteria of a Young Investigator.
- Also during the abstract submission process, select yes to indicate that you would like your abstract to be considered for oral presentation.
- Choose the session(s) to which you would like to have your abstract submitted.
- The session conveners will review the accepted abstracts and notify those that have been selected.
