The Large Animal Genetic Engineering Summit Committee invites abstracts to be submitted for Poster and Oral Presentations.
Participants who wish to give a presentation at the summit are requested to submit an abstract for review by the organizing committee. Abstracts that demonstrate scientific merit will be accepted for poster presentations. Everyone presenting a poster will be expected to give either a 2-minute flash talk or an invited 15-minute presentation. Selection for invited 15-minute oral presentations will be based on scientific merit and priority will be given to abstracts that relate to the main session topics. A minimum of four young investigators (students or post-doctoral fellows) who submit abstracts will be selected to receive $500 travel awards. The organizing committee reserves the right to decide on the final form of presentation. The first author or a representative is required to present at the LAGE Summit.
Abstract submission deadline: April 30, 2018 at 11:59 PM, Mountain Time.
If you are a young investigator and want your abstract considered for a $500 travel award, please indicate that you want to be considered for a travel award and your current academic standing (undergraduate student, MS candidate, Ph.D. candidate, or post-doctoral fellow) on the abstract submission form.
Please prepare your abstract as a Microsoft Word Document and submit it at the link at the bottom of this page. Please check spelling prior to submission to avoid errors.
