AAPS NERDG 2022 Call for Abstracts

You are invited to submit an abstract for presentation at the 2022 AAPS-NERDG Annual Meeting, to be held on Friday, April 22, 2022. This year’s meeting will be in-person and held at the Marriot in Windsor, Connecticut.

Conference abstracts are now being accepted for consideration for Academic Research Award Presentation, Short Topic Presentation, and Poster Presentations.

Submission Deadline: February 14, 2022

Types of Presentations

Academic Research Award (ARA)

The Academic Research Award (ARA) is limited to graduate students who are pursuing Master’s, Doctorate, and PharmD degrees at the time of the meeting. The majority of work presented should have been performed by the student. Each student chosen to participate will give a 15-20 min live slide presentation to the judging committee as well as the general audience. The students will be judged on the research content as well as the presentation skills including the ability to communicate to a wide audience. As reflected in the session title, an alternate speaker cannot be substituted for the ARA presenting author who is listed in the abstract submission. A presenting author who cannot present on the meeting date should inform Harsh Shah as soon as possible at [email protected] to withdraw their abstract.

Due to limitations on the number of presentation slots that the NERDG conference can accommodate, all ARA applications may not be chosen for presentation. In such cases, the ARA submission may be considered for Short Topic Presentation or Regular Poster Presentation if both the submitter and committee mutually agree.

Short Topic Presentations (STP)

The Short Topic Presentation (STP) format is designed to give academic and industrial scientists in the field the opportunity to present and discuss their research in a smaller, more interactive setting and is open to all NERDG participants. The topics for presentations are open to any area of pharmaceutical research, development, and technology. The live presentation time is 15-20 min followed by 5-10 minutes of questions. The lead author (first author) is defined as the individual who has performed the majority of the research and is expected to be the one presenting the material. The lead author should present and answer questions during the live session. However, if they cannot be present on the day of the conference, a substitute presenter should be designated. The lead author should inform Jennifer Chu as soon as possible at [email protected].

Due to limitations on the number of presentation slots that the NERDG conference can accommodate, all STP applications may not be chosen for presentation. In such cases, the STP submission may be considered for a Poster Presentation if both the submitter and committee mutually agree.

Regular Poster Presentation (RPP)

The Regular Poster Presentations will cover all topics related to pharmaceutical research, development, and technology. If your abstract is accepted for presentation, please print your poster in advance of the meeting and set up your poster no later than 8:30 am on the meeting day. Presenters are expected to be at the posters during their assigned presentation time. Please contact Shukla Snehal at [email protected] with any questions.
