2015 West Regional Meeting: Bench to Bedside

The 2015 APSA West Regional Meeting: a conference for MD and PhD students to share research at any stage.

"Bench to Bedside" is that ever-exciting yet somewhat daunting goal of Translational Research. We have scheduled an impressive and diverse group of Physician Scientists that have boldly risen to this challenge. Come, hear their stories and learn from their invaluable experience.

Who Should Attend?

Everyone with an interest in Translational Research! The organization and conference are tailored to MD/PhD, MD, PhD, or MS students interested in translational research pathways. Undergraduates with an interest in applying to MD/PhD programs are strongly encouraged to attend.

Registration is open to all students at all institutions whether you have an APSA account or not. Please follow the directions on the registration page and fill in all required lines.

Abstracts, Poster Session, and Graduate Student Speaker Selection

The poster session will highlight the outstanding research and hard work of the students who attend. We strongly encourage students at all phases of their training to submit; experimental overviews and preliminary data will be considered.

Abstracts are limited to one per registrant and the registrant must be the first author on the abstract. Please limit your abstracts to 300 words, and abstracts must include title, authors, and affiliations. We will be selecting a handful of Graduate Student Speakers from the abstracts.

Emails will be sent out to everyone who submitted an abstract informing them of whether or not their abstract was selected for the poster session or for speaker presentation.

Abstract Submission Deadline: November 1st
