The 2024 A-CURE Symposium organizing committee will select Travel Award recipients from abstracts submitted by April 29, 2024. 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 here to be directed to the rules governing the various grant awards. Please review these rules before submitting your abstract for consideration. Abstracts received after April 29th, 2024, will not be considered for a travel award.

For Poster presentations, A-CURE will accept abstracts submitted after April 29, 2024 on a rolling basis. 

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 3000 characters total (including spaces). The character limit is for the abstract body, not including the abstract title, authors and affiliations, or figure legends. 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 the acronym or abbreviations by using parentheses. References are not permitted in the abstract.

Grading and selections are blinded for any abstracts being considered for any Grant Awards.
