Submit an abstract for 2013 poster presentation sessions

Almost 200 posters were presented in 2012 and we look forward to another stimulating exhibit hall full of new and ongoing research findings. Lunch will be served in the poster hall again in 2013 and we encourage all attendees to talk with poster presenters during that time. There will be a small number of top scoring abstracts submitted as posters chosen for an oral presentation on Sunday morning, April 28. Presenters selected must be available at this time to present their work.

Poster Session

 

Poster Size: 4 feet high by 4 feet wide (You will be sharing the poster board with another

Presenter, so you must keep to this size. They will be side-by-side. You will each

have the same amount of space on a board size 4 ft by 8 ft)

Presentation Time: Saturday, April 27, 2013 - 11:45 am – 1:30 pm

Mount Time: Friday, April 26, 2013 between 1:00 pm-3:00 pm

Dismount: Saturday, April 27 from 1:30 pm – 2:00 pm

Location: Imperial Ballroom

Presenters must be at their posters from 11:45 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., on Saturday, April 27. Presenters are not required to be present during all viewing hours.

The presenting author must be positioned at the poster board during the presentation time (11:45 am – 1:30 pm). One or two authors should be in attendance during the presentation time as all posters will have reviewers assigned to stop by to discuss your poster. The poster board area is approximately 4 feet high by 4 feet wide. Please bring your own push-pins. If you are unable to present your poster, please email admin@aap-online.org.

 

Content

A poster is a visual presentation of your research or clinical project. Use schematic diagrams, graphs, tables and other strategies to direct the visual attention of the viewer, rather than explaining it using text as you would in a journal article.

A poster addresses one central question. State the question or hypothesis clearly in the poster and use your presentation to provide a clear and explicit take-home message. Posters usually have a similar structure to a research paper or journal article: an abstract, introduction(i.e., brief rationale or review of relevant research), methodsection, resultssection, and a conclusionor summary. If your poster is more clinically-oriented, you may elect to use a different format, but breaking things down into clear sections with headings will help your colleagues understand your poster easily and quickly.

In the busy and crowded environment of a poster session, most people do not have the ability to read and process long sections of text. Therefore, keep text to the bare essentials and stick to the most important ideas. You can convey details via discussion when you are standing by your poster.

Format

·Use bullet points to simplify sections like the introduction and conclusions.

·Use large type, such as 36-point type for section headings, and 24-point type for text. Never use type smaller than 18

point for any reason.

·Make effective use of underlines and boldface.

·Use graphs and figures whenever possible.

·Make your poster visually pleasing and attractive.

·Include your presentation number in a large font on your poster so attendees can easily locate your abstract.

 

BEST POSTER AWARDS:

Best Poster Awards will be awarded in the amount of $1,000 each. Members of the ASCI, AAP, and APSA (including members of each Council) will judge posters on scientific novelty, quality and clarity of presentation. Awards will be presented on Sunday morning.

Policies Governing Bench to Bedside, Insights into Translational Research

Saturday, April 27, 2013 - 2:30-3:15 pm

Every year, physicians and physician scientists confront challenges in inadequate science/clinical research resources, insufficient funding, barriers to pursuing important research disciplines, liability, and mounting administrative burdens. More and more, physicians and physician scientists realize that involvement in the political process is a necessity if progress is to be made in these areas. Further, crucial work led by physician scientists includes translational research. However, translational research is difficult to perform, with a high failure rate. Insights from those who have successfully traversed this gap, as well as understanding how novel therapies are implemented into patient care systems, will hopefully help future physician scientists in an area that physician scientists are poised to tackle.


Our policy session entitled Physician Scientists in Policy and Advocacy: "Policies Governing Bench to Bedside, Insights into Translational Research" will provide physician scientists and trainees with information on: a) how to get involved with translational medical and science advocacy/policy; b) how the government agencies play a role in promoting translational research and implementation into patient care and; c) understand steps in the drug/therapeutics approval process, challenges and key factors helpful in the process.
