Call for Abstracts for Women’s Health Research Day

The deadline to submit abstracts for the 12th annual VCU Women’s Health Research Day is March 11. The event will be held Wednesday, April, 27 in the Auditorium of the Hermes A. Kontos Medical Sciences Building (MSB), at 1217 E Marshall St., on the MCV campus.

Women’s Health Research Day is a celebration and promotion of research in Women’s Health and Sex/Gender Differences at VCU. The program includes a plenary session with presentations from VCU researchers and a poster session highlighting women’s health and sex/gender differences research from VCU faculty and students. Awards will be given for best posters in basic science, clinical and translational research, and community and public health research. The best overall poster by a junior investigator will be selected to win the Elizabeth Fries Young Investigator Award, and a Building Interdisciplinary Bridges in Women’s Health Research award will be given to the poster that best demonstrates interdisciplinary collaboration in women’s health and sex/gender differences research.

All VCU faculty, residents, students, and staff with original research are invited to submit poster abstracts in any research area that focuses on women’s health or sex/gender differences. Interdisciplinary research projects that demonstrate broad collaboration across disciplines are highly encouraged. Abstracts will be reviewed for research originality, scientific rigor, and relevance to women’s health or sex/gender differences. Recently presented research is acceptable.
