In order to be compliant with the various continuing medical education regulatory bodies, abstracts submitted by employees of commercial interests should not include patient care recommendations. They should focus on the biology, physiology or physics and include content about the discovery process. Abstracts should avoid discussion of products, treatment or diagnostics. Abstracts from employees of commercial interests that are selected for oral or poster presentation will be subject to additional review prior to ATC.
Ensure that all co-authors approve of the abstract submission, publication, and potential presentation.
Abstracts will be blinded for peer review. Authors should be cautious in using institutional references in the body of the abstract. Do not put author names and/or affiliations in the body. Abstracts which include reference to authors or institutions will not be reviewed.
