Abstract Submission Information

The goal of the Dysferlin Conference is to facilitate discussion on focused topics related to dysferlin and clearly define what is known, what is not, and what the next steps ought to be.  Please keep this in mind when choosing the data you would like to present.  Presentation of work describing your current/ongoing research is highly preferred.  Both the abstract and presentation should focus on presenting data and conclusions with the background kept to the bare minimum. Since all those attending the Dysferlin Conference are already working in the field and knowledgeable about dysferlin, general background regarding dysferlin is not needed.

Please use the provided link to submit your abstract. You are NOT limited to only one submission. Please submit as many abstracts as you feel are relevant. The person submitting the abstract(s) must be the presenting author. Please note that the decision whether your submission(s) are accepted, as well as the type and length of the presentation(s) is at the complete discretion of the Jain Foundation. Please note that you will need to provide a portrait layout picture of yourself with your abstract. The file needs to be a JPG and have a maximum file size of 20 MB.  It can be the same picture you used during registration.

Each abstract is limited to 250 words. The Jain Foundation will notify you with additional details when your abstract is accepted.

Abstract submission is closed. If you need to discuss any abstract submission, please email conference@jain-foundation.org. If for some reason your abstract is not accepted and this affects your ability to attend the conference, your registration fee will be fully refunded.
