Event Details

Background

​​The 2016 Annual Mid-Atlantic Diabetes Research Symposium is co-sponsored by the Diabetes, Endocrinology, and Obesity Branch (DEOB) at the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), National Institutes of Health (NIH); the Mid-Atlantic Nutrition Obesity Research Center (NORC) at the Department of Medicine, University of Maryland; the Johns Hopkins University-University of Maryland Diabetes Research Center (JHU-UMD-DRC); and the Foundation for Advanced Education in the Sciences (FAES) at the NIH.

Meeting Objectives

The purposes of this meeting are to encourage collaborations and enhance interactions at the regional level through the sharing of both reagents and expertise. This year’s format will comprise welcoming comments by NIDDK Director Dr. Griffin P. Rodgers; five invited lectures; six short, hot-topic talks (selected from the abstracts); and two “poster blitz” sessions inclusive of all posters.

Les Salans (former director, NIDDK) and Jesse Roth (former scientific director, NIDDK) will chair the oral presentations. Space will be available for up to 40 posters.

Breaks will be long enough to view the posters and renew acquaintances, and a 1.5-hour lunch break will feature good food at a reasonable price and a comprehensive poster session. Registration (no fee required), abstract submission, and lunch purchase are available through the symposium website. Early registration is encouraged.

Abstracts

Participants in the 2016 Mid-Atlantic Diabetes Research Symposium—co-sponsored by the Diabetes, Endocrinology, and Obesity Branch at the NIDDK; the Mid-Atlantic Nutrition Obesity Research Center (NORC) at the Department of Medicine, University of Maryland School of Medicine; and the Foundation for Advanced Education in the Sciences—are encouraged to submit abstracts of their research activities. In addition to an opportunity to present their research in a poster session, conference attendees will find additional career development and networking opportunities with other researchers.

Submission Deadline

September 2, 2016

Submitting Abstracts

All abstracts must be submitted via email to John Hare of The Scientific Consulting Group, Inc. at jhare@scgcorp.com with “Mid-Atlantic Abstract” in the subject line. Abstract submissions should be no longer than 250 words (not including name and affiliation). Click here to download the templat​e.​

Abstract Organization

Organize the body of the abstract as follows:

  1. Statement of the purpose of the study/program/project
  2. Statement of the methods used
  3. Summary of the results presented in sufficient detail to support the conclusion
  4. Statement of the conclusions reached

Formatting Requirements

Please follow the instructions below to format an abstract. (Note: Submissions will not be edited for spelling or grammar and will be accepted “as is.”)

  1. The abstract should be an MS Word document typed single-spaced using Times New Roman font. Everything but the title should be in normal, 12-point font.
    1. The abstract’s title should be Bold, 16-Point, Title Case font and should clearly represent the nature of the investigation.
    2. On the line after the title, list the author’s first and last names, degree, affiliation, city, state, and country.
    3. Separate multiple authors with a semicolon, and underline the primary author’s name (one primary author per abstract).
    4. Use one blank line between the title and the body of the abstract and between paragraphs.
    5. The abstract file name should follow this format: primary author’s LastName_FirstWordOfTitle (e.g., Zucker_Effects).
  2. Please ensure that your abstract is the correct length and use 1-inch margins
  3. Use of standard abbreviations is desirable (e.g., RBC), as well as standard symbols for units of measure (e.g., kg, g, mg, mL, L, and %). Place a special or unusual abbreviation in parentheses after the full word the first time that it appears. Use numerals to indicate numbers except to begin sentences. Do not use subtitles (e.g., Methods, Results).
  4. Simple tables or graphs may be included; however, they must fit within the designated abstract space of one page.
Poster Presentations

Poster presentations will be displayed on 4-foot-high by 6-foot-wide poster boards. Pushpins and Velcro will be provided onsite.

All presenters must register in advance for the conference.​​​​
