Student researchers and early career researchers engaging in clinical or laboratory/basic science research across Metro South Health and affiliated research institutes are invited to submit abstracts for the Research Excellence Awards.
Abstracts are to be structured in the following sections and be maximum 250 words, with no bullet points.
When submitting your abstract, please follow the instructions and adhere to the template provided on the abstract portal.
The submission deadline is 3pm Friday 27 May 2022.
Abstracts are to be submitted for consideration under one of four possible categories, determined by the following 'researcher' and 'research' sub-categories.
Abstracts will be considered for an oral presentation or poster presentation.
Three oral presentation finalists will be selected from each of the four 'researcher: research' categories and allocated a three-minute 'lightning talk' at the Research Excellence Awards oral finalist session.
If you are not selected as an oral finalist and wish to be considered for a poster, please ensure you tick both options on the abstract submission form.
Three poster presentation finalists will be selected from each of the four 'researcher: research' categories with eligible lead authors invited to present a pre-recorded one-minute 'elevator pitch' to be viewed online.
All posters will be displayed online (pdf) and displayed electronically for the duration of the symposium.
A lightning talk is a very short presentation lasting a total of only four minutes (three minutes of presentation plus one minute of questions). Lightning talks are an entertaining and focussed method of sharing information. The goal of the lightning talk is to articulate the topic in an efficient, insightful and clear manner.
An elevator pitch is a concise presentation about the research/project that creates a memorable and positive impression and opens the door to further interest and conversation.
