In concert with ASB’s enhanced efforts to increase diversity in the field, we encourage submission of abstracts reporting studies of under-represented populations and health disparities. Furthermore, appropriate descriptors of study participants should be included in submitted abstracts, such as the age, confirmation of Institutional Review Board approval, and sex composition of the sample.
Abstracts must conform to the formatting and other requirements indicated in the downloadable submission guidelines and abstract template document (available in Word format or pdf).
Information is available on the main ASB site regarding awards and travel grant applications. Please note society award and travel grant applications or nominations are due by the abstract deadline.
This year, we will have student presentation competitions at the annual ASB meeting in the B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. categories.

Finalists for the student competitions will be selected from the pool of submissions from students who opt-in when they submit their abstracts.
