Event Details


More than 300 researchers have participated in NMRI workshops in the past decade, and approximately 100 are active members. The success of the NMRI, a network that is “owned” by its members and supported by the NIDDK, begins with the dedication of senior investigators who mentor and serve as role models for junior investigators. The participation of active members and the recruitment of new members is a primary reason for the Network’s success in the past and the reason for confidence that it will continue to grow in the future.

Travel Awards

Limited Travel Awards of up to $600 for eligible members to attend the NMRI Annual Meeting are available. Awards will be given with priority to those that (1) have never participated in a NMRI meeting, (2) are junior faculty up to the Assistant Professor level and (3) are presenters of an abstract at the NMRI Annual Meeting poster session. Limited Travel Awards of up to $1,000 for eligible senior members, Associate Professor and Professor level, to attend the NMRI Annual Workshop is available. Awards to Senior members will be given with priority to those that mentor NMRI member(s).

Or you may upload your abstract on your registration page. Please indicate a category (Translational, Basic, or Clinical) on top right corner and follow the guidelines below.

Abstract Organization

Organize the body of the abstract as follows:

  • Statement of the purpose of the study/program/project;
  • Statement of the methods used;
  • Summary of the results presented in sufficient detail to support the conclusion;
  • Statement of the conclusions reached.

Formatting Requirements

Your abstract must conform to the above guidelines, as incorrect formatting could result in disqualification.

  • The abstract should be typed single-spaced, type no smaller than 10 point (12 cpi).
  • Use a common font (e.g., Helvetica, Times New Roman, or Arial)
  • Set the margins to the following using Microsoft Word: Top 1"; Bottom 1"; Left 1.25"; Right 1".
  • Abstract should be no more than one page in length.
  • The abstract’s title should be typed in CAPITAL LETTERS and should clearly represent the nature of the investigation.
  • Title should be followed in lowercase letters by the author’s first and last names, degree, affiliation (if applicable), city, state, and country. Underline the primary author’s name (one primary author per abstract).
  • Leave one blank line between the title and the body of the abstract, and between paragraphs.
  • Do not indent paragraphs.
  • Use of standard abbreviations is desirable (e.g., RBC). Use 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).
  • Simple tables or graphs may be included; however, they must fit within the designated abstract space.
  • The abstract file should be saved as: primary author’s last name_first word in the title (e.g., Zucker_Effects).
