2017 International TSC and LAM Research Conference: Innovating Through Partnerships
June 22-24, 2017
Hyatt Regency Capitol Hill
Washington, DC

Call for Abstracts

Reports on data from all aspects of basic, clinical and translational research on tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC), lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM), and related disorders are invited. Platform and poster presentations will be selected from submitted abstracts based on scientific merit and thematic considerations.  Decisions on whether to accept the abstract and how to group posters lie solely with the conference organizing committee.

A limited number of travel awards of up to $1,000 each, depending on funds, are available for graduate-level trainees, post-doctoral trainees, or junior faculty members who submit meritorious abstracts.  These will be awarded based on the recommendations of the organizing committee. 

Abstracts must be submitted online through proposalCENTRAL between January 23 and March 20.  Log into proposalCENTRAL and click the “Create New Proposal” button on the Manage Proposals page.  Abstract guidelines can be downloaded here. The deadline for abstract submission is 11:59 pm EDT on March 20, 2017. 

We are confident this will be an inspiring and productive research conference and hope to see you in Washington, DC in June!
