Presenter information

Are you planning to present your research at Research Day? Here’s what you’ll need to know.

Use these guidelines to prepare your abstract:

1. Limit title to a maximum of 10 words. Capitalize the first letter of all principal words as well as the first letter of words of four or more letters. The title should be in bold font.
2. Capitalize all letters in the names of presenters. Use initials for first names and middle names. Omit degrees and academic titles. Place an asterisk after the name of the primary presenter.
3. Place name(s) of institution(s) within parentheses.
4. Do not use all capital letters in the body of the abstract.
5. The body of the abstract limit is 300 words (this does not include the title and author/institution information).
6. The abstract must contain a brief statement of the objectives of the investigation, experimental methods used, and essential results. Results should include data. Results should also include statistics, if applicable.
7. Illustrations are not permitted n the abstract.
8. Results and conclusion must be stated in the abstract. It is not acceptable to report that results "will be presented at the meeting."
9. Abstracts reporting studies with unidentified drugs or materials will not be accepted. All drugs and materials must be identified both in the abstract and during the presentation.
10. Underline the conclusion.
11. Include name of supporting agency and grant number, if applicable.
12. Proofread carefully.

The judging competition is virtual this year. Presenters who compete for awards are required to submit a research poster and video presentation. Judges view the poster and video presentations online and meet with the presenters via online conferences to discuss their research. The award winners will be announced at the Research Day event on Monday, April 4, 2022.

  • Presentations should be a maximum of five minutes.
  • We recommend you use a minimum of four but no more than six PowerPoint slides.
  • Bear in mind that the judges and the audience on Research Day may not be experts in your area of research.
  • Describe the aim of your research and explain why it is important to answer your research question.
  • Briefly describe the materials and methods you used to conduct your research.
  • Allocate most of the presentation time to the results of your project. State the results simply and clearly so that significant facts can be readily identified.
  • Conclude the presentation with a brief summary of the essential findings you believe were demonstrated by the experimental data and their clinical relevance.
  • Acknowledge your co-authors, sponsors, and anyone who made significant contributions to your research.
