Abstract Submission

Abstract submission is closed for the 2021 JPS Research & Quality Symposium.



I'm not sure my abstract fits the theme of the Symposium. Can I still submit?
Yes! We welcome all abstract topics. Please go ahead and submit by the deadline.

Does my abstract have to be COVID-19-themed?
No, your project does not have to be COVID-related. All of this past year's work was done "in a COVID-19 era" in some sense.

Do I have to be a JPS employee to submit an abstract?
No, we welcome abstracts from members of other institutions as well (e.g., UNTHSC, TCU, UTSW, UTA, etc).

Do I need to have my project's data collected before submitting an abstract?
No, you can submit an abstract without your data collected.
