Call for Abstracts: Second Annual DF/HCC Ovarian Cancer Symposium

On Friday, April 3, 2009, the Ovarian Program in the DF/HCC will sponsor the second annual day-long symposium entitled “Ovarian Cancer Research at Harvard."

Abstracts are being accepted for the symposium.  Abstracts should present original research done on ovarian cancer, which may be basic, translational, clinical or population based research.  Awards, with a cash prize, will be given to four abstracts. All abstracts will be published in a Monograph, and available to all participants.  The deadline is Monday, March 2, at 5pm.  Please submit online to pandrade@partners.org with copy to clowe@partners.org

Abstracts must be 500 words or less, and fit on an 81/2 x 11” paper with 1” margins on all sides.  Include the title and authors at the top, acknowledgments at the bottom.  You may have one (1) figure or one (1) table both in black and white, and these illustrations must fit on the same page as the abstract text. 

We invite all DF/HCC ovarian cancer researchers including Fellows, Post-Docs, and Junior Faculty to attend and submit abstracts. 

The Symposium will be held at the Harvard Club (Commonwealth Ave.) in Boston. We will begin at 8AM (with check-in and continental breakfast available from 7:15am), will serve lunch, and conclude by 4:00 pm. Attendance is complimentary, but advance registration will be required. In early March, we will email an announcement requesting RSVP’s.
