Event Details

Meeting Purpose

Patients with Chronic Kidney Diseases (CKDs) frequently experience disturbances of mineral metabolism resulting in systemic effects on the blood, bone, and vasculature. Iron and phosphate are important to maintain these systems; however, the biological signals controlling their regulation are only partly understood. Fibroblast Growth Factor 23 (FGF-23), a bone-derived hormone, regulates systemic phosphate homeostasis. Its discovery also has revealed novel interactions between phosphate and iron homeostasis. The NIDDK extramural research community offers a wealth of existing resources, infrastructure, and expertise that could accelerate the progress in this developing research area. Interdisciplinary approaches to understanding the physiologic and molecular regulators of phosphate and iron among patients with CKDs may identify novel diagnostic tools, new interventions, and improve clinical outcomes.​​​​​​​​

Abstracts

Submission Deadline: Friday, February 10, 2017
Notification of acceptance: February 24, 2017

Participants in the FGF-23 workshop, 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.

All abstracts must be submitted via email to John Hare of The Scientific Consulting Group, Inc. at jhare@scgcorp.com with “FGF-23 Abstract” in the subject line. Abstract submissions should be no longer than 250 words (not including name and affiliation).

Please follow the instructions below to submit an abstract for consideration: Download Template

  1. Indicate the career stage of the submitting author (student, fellow, instructor, assistant professor, etc)
  2. The abstract should be an MS Word document typed single-spaced using 12 point Times New Roman font. The abstract’s title should be Bold, 16 pt., Title Case font and should clearly represent the nature of the investigation. The title should be followed in lowercase letters by the author’s first and last names, degree, and affiliation, city, state, and country. Underline the primary author’s name (one primary author per abstract). Use one blank line between the title and the body of the abstract and between paragraphs. The abstract file should be saved as: primary authors’ last name_first word in the title (e.g., Zucker_Effects).
  3. Please ensure that your abstract is the correct length and use 1" margins
  4. Use of standard abbreviations is desirable (e.g., RBC) as well as standard symbols for units of measure (e.g., kg, gm, 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).
  5. 5. Simple tables or graphs may be included; however, they must fit within the designated abstract space of one page.

Junior level participants (students, fellows, instructors and assistant professors) with the highest scoring abstracts will be eligible for a modest travel award. Travel award notifications will be made by February 24, 2017.
