The Military Health Systems Research Symposium–also known as MHSRS–is the most important Department of Defense scientific meeting of the year. Bringing together all the branches of the armed forces, this joint symposium provides a collaborative environment of exchange among military medical care providers with deployment experience, DoD scientists, industry, and academic scientists like you, OHSU researchers! This is a highly interdisciplinary meeting. Areas of interest include combat casualty care, military operational medicine, clinical and rehabilitative medicine, and military infectious disease. The 2015 MHSRS includes new topic sessions on genitourinary injuries and humanitarian emergency response–as well as a special track dedicated to infectious disease.
If you’re interested in attending, the office of the Senior Vice President for Research can help. As with the extremely popular 2014 meeting, this year, the office of the Senior Vice President for Research will pay for meeting-related travel expenses for OHSU researchers whose abstracts are accepted for presentation (you have to actually be presenting to take advantage of this offer). We can also help review abstracts for military relevance and other important details prior to submission.
Abstracts are being accepted through April 3, and you will be notified by May 8th whether your abstract was accepted. Don’t delay! The meeting is usually held the third week of August in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. And if your abstract is accepted and you want to take advantage of the travel support, we will ask you to fill out a very easy and short application (coming soon). Questions? Write firstname.lastname@example.org.
