Abstract submissions

OHSU students, faculty, postdocs, and staff will be invited to submit one abstract for a poster presentation or a 10-minute oral presentation during OHSU Research Week 2019. Abstract submission will open in early 2019.

Oral presentations will be grouped into symposia by category throughout the week. Researchers of all levels may present within the same session. Each speaker has 10 minutes to present and additional 5 minutes at the end for Q&A.

Poster dimensions are limited to 48" x 36".

Abstract submissions for 2018 Research Week now closed - stay tuned for 2019.

Instructions for abstract submissions.

  1. Go to OHSU's Competitive Application Portal to view the submission form. If you are an OHSU researcher or student, you can use your OHSU log-in information. If you're from another institution, you'll need to create an account. Questions? Write funding@ohsu.edu.
  2. Fill in all required fields and as many of the optional ones as you can. It's really important that, if you are a student, we understand all your mentoring relationships so that we can assign the right judges for your presentations. Please also let us know whether you have any scheduling conflicts. Otherwise, the submission should be straightforward.

Scholarships available to students presenting posters at Research Week

A small pool of scholarship money is available for OHSU students who would like to present a poster at Research Week but who don't have department support for poster printing expenses. You will need to prepare:

  • A short letter (no more than one page) explaining your need for this scholarship
  • The tentative title for your poster presentation
  • Name of your lab or program
  • Name and contact information of your mentor

Please note that if selected, you must commit to presenting a poster at OHSU Research Week. Awards are contingent upon poster being accepted by Research Week programming committee.

Deadlines will be posted in early 2019.
