Poster Presenter Application


Researchers are invited to submit a poster abstract for consideration for the 7th Leonard Berg Symposium. We have 30 poster slots available. Accepted presenters are waived the basic registration fee (a $30 value). If you desire CME credits, you are required to register online and pay the $110 CME Registration fee. Lodging and travel is not included.

We will be reviewing applications for poster presentations up until September 21, 2009, or until all slots are filled. Early submissions may have a better chance for acceptance.

Any researcher - senior investigator to new investigator to graduate student - may submit a poster abstract for consideration. We request that the research content be related to the topic of this Symposium (i.e., presymptomatic detection of dominantly inherited Alzheimer’s disease) and that it be unpublished on the date of application. Work that has been accepted for publication, but is yet unpublished, is acceptable for submission. It is also okay to submit an abstract concerning work in progress so long as data will be available for presentation by October 2009.

A formal poster viewing session will take place on Thursday, Oct. 1, from 5:00-6:00 pm.

To apply, simply fill out the form below and press the submit button. You will be notified of your status within 1-7 days.

If you have any questions, please send an email to galvinj@abraxas.wustl.edu.
