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:
- 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).
- 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.
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.
