The CSACI Abstract Presentation is a competition open to CSACI Trainees, AllerGen Trainees, and any Investigators interested in presenting research or clinical case presentations in the fields of allergy, asthma and/or immunology. This year, there will be two CSACI Abstract Presentations: one competition open to CSACI Trainees, Allied Health Professionals and any Investigators and one specific to AllerGen Trainees (for more information, please contact MichelleHarkness from AllerGen at: firstname.lastname@example.org).AllerGen trainees who are members in good standing of the CSACI at the time of the abstract submission are eligible to participate in both competitions, if they wish. These competitions will be adjudicated separately. Of note, abstracts submitted by Investigators rather than Trainees and Allied Health Professionals will not be judged nor invited to present at the Poster Discussion symposium as the goal of this session is to highlight the accomplishments of the CSACI trainees and Allied Health Professionals.
