We encourage submission of abstracts to ASPET topic categories in all areas of pharmacology detailing your latest work.
By submitting your abstract, you will:
- Receive feedback on your work
- Be recognized for your recent scientific advances
- Be visible to spur those conversations about collaboration
- Have opportunities to win travel and poster awards (for students and postdocs)
ASPET helps bring other scientists to you to discuss your work. Top scoring abstracts are designated as Program Committee Blue Ribbon Picks, are featured at the EB-wide welcome reception, and are selected to give oral presentations at the ASPET Daily
Datablitz and in division platform showcases.
ASPET regular, postdoc, and emeritus members can both submit their own work or sponsor the work of graduate students, undergraduates, and non-members. ASPET graduate student members may submit their own work but cannot sponsor others.
Travel award and poster competition eligibility is based on student and postdoc submission to ASPET topic categories by the November 18, 2019 deadline.

How to be considered for ASPET Oral Presentations
Abstracts submitted by November 18th by students and postdocs may also be considered for an oral presentation in related symposia, division platform sessions,
or the ASPET Daily Datablitz sessions. If selected for oral presentation, you will also be scheduled to present a poster. If your accepted abstract is not selected for an oral presentation, you will still be scheduled for a poster. No separate
application is needed. When submitting your abstract to EB, be sure to select an ASPET topic category.
How to be considered for an ASPET Travel Award

How to be considered for an ASPET Poster Award
New streamlined application process: Eligible students and postdocs must submit their work through EB to any ASPET category below and when prompted within the EB submission site, answer “yes” they want to be considered for the
