2021 Call for Abstracts
ABSTRACT SUBMISSION DATE: Wednesday, October 6, 2021
ABSTRACT SUBMISSION LINK: Abstract Submission - 2021 CFAR Fall Scientific Retreat
All pre- and post-doctoral trainees, as well as junior faculty investigators conducting AIDS-related research at Duke are encouraged to submit an abstract for poster presentation at the seventeenth annual CFAR Fall Scientific Retreat. This year we have a special track to include research on any human pathogen (i.e. research on COVID-19, pathogens with pandemic potential included) where the methods, concepts or findings provide novel insights for AIDS-related research.
This is an opportunity to share your research design, progress, and new insights with others in the Duke University community. Final results are not required, and ‘works in progress’ and posters that have been recently presented at other meetings are welcome.
This year each poster will be presented as a prerecorded, 3-5 minute slide presentation. No actual poster is required. The one-page abstract will be published in the Fall Retreat Program and must contain the following sections: Background, Methods, Results, Impact and Conclusions. *Prizes for Best Mini-Oral Presentation will be awarded in the following research categories:
- Social & Behavioral
- Human pathogens (i.e. emerging, pandemic potential)
*Additional abstracts will be selected for longer presentation and discussion during the Retreat.
Abstract submissions are due by Wednesday, October 6, 2021.
Submit your abstract at this link: https://duke.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_7UHxAhxfEJWEGBU
You will receive an email confirmation that your file was uploaded successfully and then a follow-up email with the slide presentation template and further details.
Abstracts selected for longer, live oral presentations at the Retreat will be announced by October 13, 2021.
