Abstract Submission

Abstract submission is closed.

Abstracts addressing all aspects of ovarian cancer research are welcome for poster presentation at the Symposium. We strongly encourage presentations on clinical cancer research, as well as on basic, translational, population sciences, and biobehavioral cancer research. We also encourage presentations on policy issues related to ovarian cancer.

Accepted abstracts will be presented at the poster session on the evening of May 10, 2012. Authors of the most meritorious abstracts may be invited to present at a mini-symposium during that session. The top abstracts from all those submitted will appear in the International Journal of Gynecologic Cancer.

A limited number of travel awards ($250-500 + registration) will be made to presenting authors of the most meritorious abstracts. Priority for awards will be given to abstracts from students, residents, fellows and trainees, as well as to junior faculty members.
