Late breaking abstracts

Submissions are open April 1 – 15, 2019

Late breaking abstracts are designed to highlight significant research findings that have emerged only after the original abstract submission deadline had passed. Late breaking abstracts should not include work that has been previously presented or published in any form, anywhere, or included in other abstracts to be presented at the ISPGR 2019 World Congress.

Please note that the Late-Breaking Abstracts are not designed to accommodate investigators who inadvertently missed the original deadline.

Late-Breaking Abstract submissions will be accepted during a two-week submission period beginning on April 1st and closing on April 15th.

As a reminder, in order to submit an abstract, you must be a member of ISPGR.
