Abstract and Poster Information
Abstracts will be published online, in the SOT Metabolic Syndrome and Associated Diseases: From the Bench to the Clinic Abstract On-Demand system. Abstracts should describe the aims of the work, methods, and the key experimental findings in a clear and succinct manner (brevity is important). All abstracts will be reviewed for scientific content and the Scientific Organizing Committee reserves the right to refuse abstracts that do not adhere to publication guidelines. It is hoped that abstracts and posters will be the first presentations of the study represented.
Posters will be presented at a luncheon on March 11, 2017, as well as available for viewing for the duration of the meeting.
NOTE: Please proof your abstract for accuracy and completeness. We have added the ability to submit certain special characters in this form. You will see a list of these characters included on the form below. In order to insert one of these characters in your abstract, simply place your cursor at the exact point you want the symbol to appear, and click on the corresponding symbol graphic from the special character toolbar. In place of the actual symbol, the program will insert special code that will tell us what characters need to be inserted. After submitting your abstract you will be able to preview your final submission online, complete with special characters, and make any changes that are necessary.
Submission of abstracts and all revisions must be completed by Midnight EDT March 1, 2017.
