The 7th A-CURE Symposium organizing committee will select Travel Award recipients from abstracts submitted by September 5, 2022. The top-ranking abstracts as determined by the A-CURE Faculty will be invited to compete for one of three Research Grant Awards. Please click this link to be directed to the Rules governing the various grant award mechanisms and their value. Please review these Rules before submitting your abstract for consideration. Abstracts received after September 5, 2022, will not be eligible for travel award consideration.

A-CURE will accept late-breaking abstracts submitted after September 5, 2022. A late-breaking abstract should contain new data that was not known or fully available by the abstract submission deadline. Late-breaking abstracts will not be eligible for travel award consideration.

Abstract submission criteria

All abstracts should summarize new research that is applicable to the A-CURE mission. Clinical, pre-clinical, registry, modeling, and basic science studies are all encouraged to apply.

All abstracts must be submitted in English with accurate grammar and spelling suitable for publication. All data presented in the abstract must be original material. All abstracts that use animal studies must adhere to the “Principals of laboratory animal care” (NIH Publication number 85-23, revised 1985). If the research being presented involves human subjects, it must conform to the principles of the Declaration of Helsinki of the World Medical Association.

A-CURE requires that abstracts be limited to 300 words total, and all submissions should follow the structured abstract outline below:

  • Background
  • Hypothesis
  • Methods
  • Results
  • Conclusion(s)

Authors may submit up to 2 (two) figures or data tables to support their abstract. Please include numerical data with statistical p-value in the Results section when appropriate. To save space, commonly used acronyms are allowed in the abstract without a prior definition (i.e., STEMI, MAP, BP, etc.). Otherwise, define the term at first use of acronym or abbreviations by using parentheses. References are not allowed in the abstract.

For abstracts submitted for the Travel Award Competition, the grading and selection of abstracts for scholarship award purposes is blinded.
