Hypoxia Research Symposium 2019 - Call for Abstracts
Friday, January 25, 2019 | 1:30 - 5:00 PM


The Cardiovascular, Diabetes and Metabolic Diseases Research Center cordially invites you to participate in the upcoming Hypoxia Research Symposium. The goal of this session is to bring together clinicians and researchers working on various hypoxia-related topics to encourage cross-collaborative research efforts and stimulate new ideas for further investigation.

Attendees are encouraged to participate by submitting an abstract to present as a poster and a select few will be given the opportunity to give a short talk. CASH PRIZES of $250-$500 will be given to selected talks and top posters!


  • Researchers with a rank of assistant professor, instructor, research/clinical fellow, resident or graduate students are invited to submit an abstract to give a short talk (10-12 mins) or present a poster (limited to the 30 most qualified applicants).
  • Applicants may only submit one abstract as either a first author or corresponding author but may be a contributing author on additional abstracts.
  • Abstracts that are not selected for talks will by default be considered for inclusion in the poster session, which will be displayed on electronic poster boards.
  • Abstracts in any area of basic, clinical, translational or epidemiological research related to hypoxia are welcome.
  • Previously presented work will be accepted for both short talks and posters.
  • Successful applicants MUST be available to talk or present a poster at the Hypoxia Symposium from 1:30 – 5:00 PM on January 25, 2019.
Applications accepted from 11/16/2018 12PM to 12/31/2018 12PM.
