Poster Presentation Abstracts
Poster abstracts will be reviewed by the 2019 Crush Foundation TBI committee comprised of principal investigators from local organizations for scientific merit and relevance to TBI and/or psychological health co-morbidities with TBI. Any abstract author or poster author must be available on the dates of the Symposium. Selected posters will be displayed from the morning of Friday, December 13 through the close of the Symposium on Saturday, December 14. Time will be set aside for symposium attendees to view posters and network with poster presenters. Poster boards are 4 feet tall by 6 feet wide and push pins will be provided at the site.
A poster judging session will take place Friday, December 13 during day for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, with recognition for the top 3 in each category. Posters will be judged on scientific merit, relevance to TBI and/or psychological health co-morbidities, and overall presentation style. The poster awards presentation will occur on Saturday, December 14 after the public session’s start.
Due to limited space, we may not be able to accept all submissions. We encourage submitters to submit their best science or work to combine similar projects into one poster abstract submission. Abstracts should state results and be written to address selection based on scientific merit and relevance to TBI and/or psychological health co-morbidities with TBI.
