Abstracts Due: Postdoctoral Data Blitz on Translational Research in Epilepsy

Friday, February 26, 2021
9:00 pm EST

CURE Epilepsy’s Frontiers in Research Seminar Series program is generously supported by the Nussenbaum-Vogelstein Family and aims to help educate and expose researchers, clinicians, and students to exciting epilepsy research and also provide opportunities for young investigators to interact with leaders in the field.

CURE Epilepsy will conduct a virtual, postdoctoral data blitz, a series of short talks, to provide senior postdoctoral researchers an opportunity to share their work with other epilepsy researchers. The seminar will focus on highly innovative, translational epilepsy research that can lead to a cure. The hour-long seminar will highlight work from three researchers, who will each get ten minutes to present their work followed by five minutes for questions from the audience.

More information on the researchers and their talks will be available in early April.

Interested speakers may submit an abstract accompanied by a biosketch to research@cureepilepsy.org for consideration by Friday, February 26 at 9 PM EST 2021.

To be eligible, you must

  1. Have at least three years of postdoctoral experience
  2. Be working on a novel, translational research project on any of CURE Epilepsy’s priority research areas which include acquired epilepsy, drug-resistant epilepsy, pediatric epilepsies, SUDEP, and sleep and epilepsy.

Abstracts must be no longer than a half page (250 words) in length and single-spaced. Figures and/or graphs are not required. Please include your name, email and institution, and any publications related to the work in your abstract.

Abstract submission deadline is Friday, Feb. 26 at 9 PM EST. Email your abstract to research@cureepilepsy.org. You may also reach out to us at this address with any questions regarding this seminar.

Researchers who are selected to speak will be contacted via email by end of March 2021.
