9th Annual NIDDK Fellows Scientific Conference
April 23-24, 2014
Natcher Conference Center
Table of Contents
Eligibility and Attendance
All NIDDK Fellows are eligible to participate.
Online Registration is now OPEN.
To attend the NIDDK Fellows Conference, you must submit a Research Abstract. New Fellows, six months or less are encouraged but not required to submit an abstract. The rationale for this requirement is clear and simple: the whole point is to let other Fellows know the nature of your research, to share information and technical expertise, and to stimulate collaborations. What better way to do this than through a Book of Abstracts that will be made available in hardcopy? This handy reference will also be provided to all new, incoming Fellows in PDF format.
The deadline for registration will be Tuesday, March 25, 2014.
Food is provided by FAES for the registrants.
Guidelines for Preparation of Abstracts
Online Abstract Submission is now OPEN (PDF 229 KB).
All research abstracts will be compiled into a Meeting Book that will be presented to attendees at the beginning of the Conference.
The deadline for abstracts will be Tuesday, March 25, 2014.

As part of the Registration for the Conference, you will be asked whether you prefer to give an Oral or a Poster Presentation.
Each presentation will be 20 minutes in length (15 minutes for the talk and 5 minutes for discussion).
PowerPoint presentations are strongly encouraged over 35 mm slides.
All PowerPoint presentations will be loaded onto a single Laptop Computer and tested thoroughly beforehand so as to avoid incompatibilities and technical problems.
Let us know if you have special Audiovisual and Other Equipment needs.
If you have not checked the box for Oral Presentation, you are expected to present a poster during the conference. The fellows will be assigned a date and time for their poster presentation prior to the conference.
Five Travel Awards of $1,000 each will be given to Fellows for the Best Oral and Poster Presentations.
