Poster Abstract Overview and Topics

Get involved! DIA and the Program Committee invite you to submit a poster abstract to be presented during the Medical Communications Residents and Fellows attending the Medical Affairs and Scientific Communications Forum. March 22-24. Posters describing research, best practices, or approaches related to medical affairs, medical information/communication*, medical science liaisons, and medical writing will be considered for acceptance.

These selected abstracts will also be considered for publication in Therapeutic Innovation & Regulatory Science (TIRS), DIA’s peer-reviewed, scientific journal. TIRS is now indexed in PubMed, and advances healthcare product discovery, development, regulation, and use by publishing peer-reviewed articles and commentaries which convert biomedical science into practical solutions that advance human health.
