The Individualizing Medicine 2014: From Promise to Practice conference invites abstract submissions that highlight advances in individualized medicine. The abstract submission deadline is June 13, 2014.

Six abstracts will be selected for poster presentations during an afternoon concurrent session. You need to specify if you want your abstract to be considered for a poster presentation when you submit the abstract.

All abstract submissions must be related to individualized medicine. Topics may include, but are not limited to:

  • Ethical, legal and regulatory issues
  • Genetic and genomic counseling
  • Provider or patient education

Notifications of acceptance or rejection will be sent by email to presenting authors by July 18. At least one author of an accepted abstract must register for attendance at the conference.

There is no limit to the number of abstracts that you may submit, but you may be first author or presenter on only one abstract.
