Call for Entries: Third Annual Fighting Cancer With Knowledge And Research Symposium

The Third Annual Fighting Cancer with Knowledge and Research Symposium is scheduled for October 3 from 1:30-3:30 p.m., at 4801 Alberta Ave., Auditorium 3500., immediately followed by a poster session and reception in the AEC lobby from 3:45 – 5 p.m. The poster session will be dedicated to all aspects of cancer prevention, research, and education. The overall objective is to disseminate cancer education, enhance cancer research and encourage presenters to showcase their research in the field of cancer.
The abstract overview is intended to present new information or information that has already been published or presented at another meeting. It is expected that a submission of an abstract means that the author(s) will be available to present.

ABSTRACT SUBMISSIONS
Please email ccrc@ttuhsc.edu for the abstract registration and submission forms.  Complete and email back to ccrc@ttuhsc.edu by September 25, 5 p.m. This is a firm date. No submissions will be accepted after the deadline.

1. The project presented must be in the field of cancer prevention, research, or education and the first author of the abstract must have actively participated in the research project.
2. A presenter may submit a maximum of one abstract.
3. The abstract should contain:

• A short and descriptive title
• Names of all co-authors involved in the research
• A concise statement about the problem under investigation or the hypothesis to be tested
• A concise statement about the experimental method used
• The essential results obtained (specific findings must be included; broad generalizations or the promise “to be completed” are not acceptable) in summary form
• Conclusions

Abstracts will be accepted for presentation on the basis of the merit of the data presented in the abstract. Incomplete or improperly executed abstracts will be rejected. Submission of an abstract does not guarantee acceptance for presentation at the meeting. A panel of reviewers will score all submitted abstracts and awards will be given for: Best Clinical Science, Best Translation Science, Best Basic Science, and Highest Impact to Patients.

The decision of the Program and Planning Committee regarding accepted and rejected abstracts is final.
