Research Day


17th Annual ACCM Research Day

Monday, November 30, 2015

Chevy Chase Auditorium and Conference Room, Zayed Tower

4:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

ABSTRACT DEADLINE - October 19, 2015

Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine would like to invite you to submit your abstracts to the 17th Annual ACCM Research Day. Over the past 16 years, Research Day has become entrenched in our department’s culture and is well recognized for the quality of science presented and spirit of camaraderie that it engenders. We hope that the tremendous levels of participation will continue this year.

This year you will be asked to submit both an abstract and an ultra-mini abstract. The ultra-mini abstract should summarize your major finding and its clinical or translational implications in no more than 50 words. Abstracts will be grouped by category after submission to promote discussions in small breakout sessions during the event. Like last year, posters will be presented on electronic screens. Preselected faculty members will serve as moderators.

Abstract Submission: To submit your abstract, click the link below to go to the online registration site.

This year's guest speaker will be Judith Hellman, MD, Professor and Vice Chair for Research, Department of Anesthesia and Perioperative Care, University of California, San Francisco. Dr. Hellman is a critical care anesthesiologist who studies sepsis-related molecular signaling pathways. She is the 2015 recipient of the International Anesthesia Research Society Frontiers in Anesthesia Research Award.
