Submit an abstract

Poster abstract sessions – the top 10 abstracts will be selected for presentation as moderated posters on Monday afternoon whilst other accepted abstracts will be presented and judged on Tuesday afternoon

Young Investigator Prize

Combined BCS/BAS/BSCR competition with the top 5 applications being selected for oral presentation on Tuesday lunchtime with a first prize of £1,000. Open to basic scientists who are no more than 5 years post-PhD and clinicians who have not attained consultant status. Application requires submission of a brief communication (1,000 words with up to 5 tables/figures). Please note that if your submission for the Young Investigator Prize is not shortlisted for presentation, it is not automatically entered as a standard poster abstract submission. To do this you will need to separately submit your abstract following the normal submission process and you are encouraged to do this – if your application for the Young Investigator Prize is subsequently shortlisted then you will have the option of withdrawing your standard poster abstract

Abstract submission deadline: Friday 1st March
