CALL FOR POSTER ABSTRACTS

Authors from academic and non-profit medical research organizations are invited to submit poster abstracts that feature comparative approaches to better understanding health and disease in humans and non-human animals.  The Zoobiquity Conference aims to facilitate conversations between clinicians caring for the same diseases in different species.  It facilitates discussion amongst clinicians and scientists from human and veterinary medicine and seeks to identify innovative methods that effectively contribute to enhancing collaboration and fostering interprofessional and interdisciplinary medical research.

Examples of abstract topic areas include comparative approaches to cancer, heart disease, mental illness, autoimmune disorders and other syndromes.

The Zoobiquity Conference poster session provides clinicians and scientists an opportunity to share and showcase good practice or research with fellow human and veterinary health professionals.  Presenters and conference attendees will have a chance to create networks and communities with others who share common interests as well as engage in interdisciplinary dialogues with professionals across diverse clinical disciplines.

 

All abstracts must be submitted by Friday, August 23, 2013, 12:00 A.M. PDT.
