  1. Posters allow you to get feedback on ongoing research. Whether your work is in its early stages or completed, you will benefit from discussions with other researchers in the same field.
  2. Network with fellow attendees and have an impartial discussion of your work with people from around the globe, across the drug development continuum.
  3. Posters are a great way to disseminate your work, especially if it falls within a narrow field of specialization.
  4. If your field of research is not featured prominently in our program, a poster is a great way to bring your content to a wide, interdisciplinary audience.
  5. Gain the skills and confidence to present your work in a dynamic fashion to an audience of your peers.


Abstracts must be submitted online.
