Abstract submissions for the Research Excellence Awards opened on Monday 29 March 2021.
Student researchers, early-career researchers, health professionals engaged in research in addition to their clinical practice (clinician-researchers) and non-clinician researchers are invited to submit abstracts for the Research Excellence Awards oral finalist presentations or poster exhibition.
This year, two additional poster categories will be introduced. These 'Collaborative Research' categories will showcase MSH partnerships producing high impact, innovative research.
The two categories are:
Oral and poster presentation abstracts are to be maximum 250 words, with no bullet points.
(If you are unsuccessful in being accepted as an oral presentation and you wish to be considered for a poster, please tick both options on the submission form).
Abstracts for oral presentations will be selected from the clinical and laboratory/basic science research categories and allocated a three-minute 'lightning talk' at the Research Excellence Awards.
All posters will be presented online. In addition, a selection of posters based on abstract score will be physically displayed at the Research Excellence Awards. The lead author for each selected physically displayed poster will be invited to present a one minute 'elevator pitch' to attendees during an informal exhibition session.
*NB: the collaborative research categories are only eligible for posters.
A lightning talk is a very short presentation which is meant as an entertaining and focussed method of sharing information. The goal of the lightening talk is to articulate the topic in an efficient, insightful and clear manner.
An elevator pitch is a concise statement about the research/project that creates a memorable and positive impression and opens the door to further conversation.
Elevator pitches are strictly limited to one minute.
Abstracts are to adhere to the template provided on the abstract portal. The submission deadline is 3pm Friday 28 May 2021.
