    Eligibility and Attendance

    All NIDDK Fellows are eligible to participate.

    Online Registration is now CLOSED

    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.

    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.

    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.
