Pathways to Cures — Translational Research Day 2015
Tuesday, May 12, 2015
UC Irvine Student Center


We are now accepting abstracts for the Annual Translational Science Research Day, sponsored by the Institute for Clinical and Translational Science (ICTS). Don't miss out on the chance to share your work, gain exposure, and find new opportunities for collaboration. Due to space limitations, only the top 100 submissions will be presented during the conference. Submit early!


New to 2015—Oral Presentations!

For 2015, there will also be opportunities for oral presentations. We will highlight 5-7 studies that focus on potentially transformative topics in translational sciences (e.g., novel approaches to analyze exosomal microRNA communication between organ systems; “big data” approaches to transform clinical trials; etc.). Abstracts will be reviewed by a panel of experts and evaluated based on the following questions:

  • Does the study represent a potential breakthrough in understanding a particular disease or disease process?
  • Have the investigators identified a new approach to biomarkers with potential usefulness across a spectrum of human disease?
  • Is the research likely to alter the way the public views health, diseases, and prevention?

Those selected will present their work via a 10-minute presentation with open discussion. To be considered for this opportunity, be sure to select the box “Interested in Oral Presentation” when submitting your abstract.
