Call for Abstracts

Call for Podium and Poster Abstracts

Podium abstracts are now being accepted until Monday, June 3!

Abstracts are now being accepted for podium and poster presentations at the 2019 SLAS Sample Management Symposium. Podium presentations will be accepted for inclusion in one of four sessions: 

  • Enabling Drug Discovery: Target Validation to Pre-Clinical
  • Innovative Technology and Process Optimization
  • Enabling New Medicines: From Candidate to Clinic
  • The Common Threads Across All Sample Types: Challenges of Sample Management Quality and Compliance

Poster presentations allow for one-on-one discussion and open doors for future collaboration. Posters are often the "presentation format of choice" for many scientists as it allows a greater opportunity for one-on-one discussion.

To be considered for a podium or poster presentation, you must submit an abstract for consideration by the 2019 SLAS Sample Management Symposium Program Committee. See deadlines below.
