The National Student Research Forum is held annually on the University of Texas Medical Branch campus in Galveston, TX. The National Student Research Forum is organized and run by students for the discussion of student research papers in a scientific atmosphere. We look forward to seeing you this year at the NSRF.
A manuscript or registration fee should not be submitted until you receive an acceptance letter from the NSRF, which will inform you of the confirmed deadline date for the manuscript.
Dear Doctors, Friends and Colleagues:
We cordially invite you to participate in the 55th Annual National Student Research Forum (NSRF). This year's forum will feature student research excellence from across the country and abroad, and provides the culmination of three premiere regional student research forums. The Forum is held every year on the campus of the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Texas. This year the NSRF will start Wednesday, April 23, 2014 with an exciting kickoff party and will continue through the awards banquet on Friday April 25, 2014. Scientific presentations will begin the morning of Thursday, April 24 and continue through Friday, April 25.
The NSRF is a meeting that gives medical and graduate students as well as interns and residents the opportunity to present their biomedical research. Presentations may include research in the basic sciences, clinical sciences, or medical humanities, on work that is completed or in progress, but that has not been published prior to abstract submission. The NSRF offers an excellent opportunity for participants to receive critical review and recognition of their research by their peers and established scientists. Presentations include either poster presentations or oral presentations with accompanying manuscripts. Participants also have the opportunity to participate for more than 30 different categorical and overall awards.
Over the past fifty one years, the NSRF has grown from a small regional meeting to a nationally respected assembly of young scientists. Originating in 1960 at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, the first Forum had participants from Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, and Tennessee. Last year students from schools throughout the U.S. and internationally were at the NSRF last year and over 150 abstracts were presented. The 55th Annual National Student Research Forum will prove to be more rewarding than ever. The University of Texas Medical Branch provide primary funding for the meeting. For more information and to submit your abstract and application, visit our website at www.utmb.edu/nsrf . The abstract submission deadline Extension February 24, 2014. We hope to see you in April 2014!
