The deadline to submit abstracts has passed, and submissions are now closed.

Conference attendees are invited to submit abstracts on topics pertaining to precision medicine practice, innovation, and/or research. Submitted abstracts can be considered for poster (March 7, 2019) or podium (March 8, 2019) presentation.Contributed abstracts sessions provide a forum in which to share practice information, disseminate research findings, and educate colleagues.

Abstracts accepted as posters will be on display March 7, 2019, with a poster viewing session during the evening reception to allow attendees to network and discuss strategies with authors. Abstracts accepted as podium presentations will be presented in a rapid-fire oral presentation session on March 8, 2019 from 2:45pm to 3:30pm.

Responsibilities of the Presenting Author

The first author listed for each abstract serves as the presenting author and as the primary contact for correspondence regarding the abstract. All authors will be asked to confirm that they are submitting their abstract with the intent of attending the 2018 UF Precision Medicine Conference and that each co-author has been informed of this abstract submission and has agreed to all information as it was submitted.

Poster Session

Accepted abstracts will be scheduled for an open poster session during the Precision Medicine Conference. The purpose of the Poster session is to encourage conference attendees and speakers to informally discuss current projects, research, and innovations in precision medicine with colleagues.

Printed posters should be created in the following dimensions: 42” x 44” or 44” x 44”

Rapid-Fire Oral Podium Session

Abstract presenters can indicate interest in a podium presentation on March 8, 2019 at the time of submission. In this session, presenters will have 3 to 5 minutes to present and summarize their findings with a brief time for questions/discussion. Although patient cases are eligible for poster presentation, preference will be given to podium presentation for this category of submissions.
