Abstract submission

The Respirology Research Forum is an excellent opportunity for faculty, fellows, residents and students to highlight their research. Basic science, knowledge translation and clinical research submissions from students and investigators in Adult and Paediatric Respirology, Sleep Research, Thoracic Surgery, Anaesthesia, Critical Care Medicine, and Biomedical Engineering are all welcome!

​Abstracts submitted to other conferences can be used and submitted to the Respirology Research Forum.
However, please format your abstract according to the instructions below.

​You will be notified whether your abstract has been accepted for an oral or poster presentation in early June.

Abstracts will be selected to be presented as short oral presentations (7 min talk + 3 min questions) via Zoom on June 23, 2021.

Abstracts not selected as oral presentations will be presented as mini-posters presented on the website.

We will be seeking a balance between the various disciplines of basic vs. clinical research/knowledge translation.

Monetary prizes will be awarded for the best basic and clinical/knowledge translation research presentations and posters. To be eligible for awards the presenter must be a research/clinical trainee, students or Junior staff (less than 3 years on faculty).

We look forward to receiving your abstracts and seeing your research on the Respirology Research Forum.
Sincerely.
