Call for Abstracts

Calling all trainees! The 2018 NextGen Retreat Science committee would like to invite you to submit an abstract to present a talk at the inaugural 2018 trainee retreat, to be held on March 7 at the Starr Center.

Our theme is “The New Frontier” and as such we are looking for talks that explore the new frontier of science. Trainees are welcome to present topics within their particular field that would be applicable to a scientific audience with varied interests or topics from outside their field that address issues critical to the advancement of science in general. Think of the type of presentation you might see at a Ted Talk and bring that talk to the Broad!

All abstracts submitted should be fewer than 300 words and will be evaluated based on five criteria: impact, innovation, clarity, science and passion.

Submit your abstracts to aflorent@broadinstitute.org no later than February 9, 2018.
