About the Forum
The UT Southwestern Medical Student Research Forum is an annual event celebrating research conducted by current UT medical students. The Forum is open to any medical student who participated in research, whether it be through the Summer Research Program or a year-long program like HHMI.
Students with accepted abstracts are able to present a poster at the poster session and reception held at the A.W. Harris Faculty and Alumni Center. Six students will be selected to give oral presentations during the day. An expert panel of judges selects the two best oral presentation and the four most outstanding posters. The top presenters are recognized with certificates and cash awards.
At a reception afterward, a prominent researcher addresses the participants.
Abstracts must be submitted electronically and on paper using the downloadable abstract form. The title, authors, affiliations, and text of the abstract must be in 10 point Arial font, and must all fit in an area 4.5x7 inches (the area outlined by the box in the linked form). The deadline for the receipt of abstracts will be 5 p.m. on November 15, 2012. The electronically submitted abstract should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition, a signed copy of the abstract must be submitted to Dr. Galindo’s office.
Submissions are categorized by the student and mentor into one of the following categories:
- Clinical Research
- Basic Research/ Disease Models
- Research Design and Methods
These categories are designed to permit a fair judging of like abstracts and posters and to permit the participation of all students conducting research.
