SUBMIT AN ABSTRACT

Translational Research Symposium 2018

 

The 7th Annual Translational Research Symposium will be held on Monday 5th and Tuesday 6th August at the Translational Research Institute, Brisbane. This year the theme is “Talk Science to Me” with the goal to encourage researchers to communicate their work with all types of audiences.  The 2019 categories to enter are Discover, Develop and Deliver.  These terms broadly describe the translational research pathway. 

This event promotes networking throughout South-East Queensland amongst post-graduate students and professionals willing to showcase their translational research. Oral and poster sessions will be held throughout the day.  All researchers and students are welcome to attend.

Where is the closest bus and train stop to TRI?

The closest bus station is the PA hospital stop, once you are off the bus, walk up the hill of Diamantina Rd to the large orange building, TRI.  The closest train station is Dutton Park train station, continue walking down Kent St and you can follow the orange path to the atrium of the TRI building.

I am not submitting an abstract this year.  Can I still attend?

Absolutely!  We hope to see you there.

Who can submit an abstract?

Abstract Submissions are now OPEN as of the 1st of April, 2019.  Please submit your abstracts here.  We open abstract submissions to all students (honours, masters and PhD), as well as anyone conducting translational research.  This includes research assistants, early career researchers (ECRs), mid-career researchers (MCRs), and clinicians.  We welcome anyone from the South-East Queensland region to submit abstracts and attend the symposium.

Do I need to register as well if I submit an abstract?

Yes.  Submitting an abstract is separate to registration.  Despite being a free event, we require registration to determine the numbers for catering, and food requirements.  Also by registering, you will be able to receive your free beverage from the coffee cart.  Registrations will open shortly after abstract submissions close and presenters announced, and a reminder email to register will be sent out to poster and oral presenters.  You must register to present at the TRS.

What if I’m not sure which category to enter in?

If you are unsure as to what category to enter under, please email [email protected] with the subject line ‘TRS-2019 Category’ with your abstract and we will let you know.  You will then need to return to the submissions page and enter your abstract. 

Do I need to be with my poster during the poster session?

To be eligible for poster prizes, you must be at your poster during the poster session.  Judges will make a maximum of two visits to your poster before awarding you ZERO.

What is a translational aspect?

A fundamental or basic science project is the systematic study towards a greater knowledge, or understanding.  A TRANSLATIONAL project is addressing a clinical question with information that may help improve a treatment, or care of patients.
