Basic Research Forum Abstract-based Talks: Monday, November 1st from 8:00am – 12:00pm PST (virtual)

Submit an Abstract:  Deadline September 6th. No fee for abstract submission.

Abstract submission to the Basic Research Forum is independent from Kidney Week 2021 annual meeting submission. Selected abstracts will be eligible for Young Investigator Abstract Awards!

Abstract submission is not required to attend this forum. However, space is limited and registration will be first come, first served. Please also register if you would like to attend the Basic Research Forum, regardless of abstract submission, so the Zoom information can be sent to you at a later date.

Participate in a Specific Aims Workshop: Deadline September 6th. These will take place the week of October 25th (virtual).

The purpose of these interactive sessions is to provide feedback during the early stages of grant preparation for trainees and junior faculty preparing grants for late 2021/early 2022. Mentors and mentees will be grouped with consideration for both research expertise and training stage.

Networking Event: In-person at ASN Kidney Week, Friday, November 5th from 12:30pm – 2:00pm PST.

If you’re planning on attending Kidney Week in-person, there will be organized lunch groups for trainees and junior faculty to meet each other and established investigators.

The Basic Research Forum is committed to diversity and inclusion. Women and individuals from under-represented and disadvantaged backgrounds are encouraged to participate.
