The form at right is for both Abstract Submissions and general registration for our Research Conference. For those submitting abstracts, please read and adhere to the following guidelines.
Abstracts are for KY INBRE-funded research and are for poster presentation and possible faculty research talks (15 minutes total including time for Q&A) or student flash talk presentations (three minutes, one slide, zero questions asked). Only the student posters (high school, undergraduate students, graduate/medical students, postdocs) will be judged.
It is the author’s responsibility to see that the guidelines and instructions are followed to ensure optimal results.
Abstracts are due Feb 9. No late abstracts will be accepted.
Note: No figures or special characters will be accepted with the abstract. Because of the limitations of the form, there will not be italicized words, either. We are aware of this and are okay without them.
Each abstract should be divided into five subheadings:
Hypothesis/Goal of Study
Methods and Results, and
Grant Support/Citations and Acknowledgements
SIZE: Abstracts should include a title, author(s), affiliation(s), text, and acknowledgments. Please limit the body of the abstract to 300 words or less.
AUTHORS: The presenting author will be the primary contact for this abstract, will receive email notifications regarding poster creation, and be responsible for giving the podium and/or poster presentation. The presenting author is responsible to contact other authors regarding the status of the abstract. Include all authors’ full first and last names. The presenting author’s name should be listed first. Include all authors’ department and university affiliations. Research mentor/PI should be the last author.
Denote authors from different affiliations with a number. For example: Jane Smith(1), John Doh(2), Jean Jones(1,3) and Fred Flintstone(1)
AFFILIATION(S): Include department, name of institution and location for each author on your abstract. Include affiliation key numbers.
For example, (1)Department of Biology, Awesome University, City, KY, (2) Department of Molecular Biology, Great College, Town, KY
GRANT SUPPORT: Acknowledgement of grant support should be given at the end of the abstract.
You are responsible for making sure there are not typographical or grammatical issues. Abstracts will be published publicly as submitted. If you do not want your abstract to be viewed by the public, mark it as “embargo.”
The KY INBRE Acknowledgement Statement/Citation Information and official logos are located under the Resources tab above. Do not right-click or screen capture our logo – that would be too low res for your poster. Hi res versions of our logo in various formats are available to download here on our website.
