Call for Abstracts and Posters

for the 14th Biomedical Research Symposium

“We can Make a Difference”

September 18 – 20, 2013

at the Kellogg Conference Center Tuskegee University

The 14th Biomedical Research Symposium Planning Committee is now soliciting abstracts for podium and poster presentations. The symposium will be focused on ways in which to reduce the burden of the health disparity diseases on minority populations here in the United States, and in other underserved populations residing in economically challenged countries. The theme is “We Can Make A Difference”. This will be the kickoff for a global campaign to enact, just one feasible measure, to reduce the prevalence of the disparity diseases, identified as cancer, cardiovascular, diabetes, HIV, hypertension and infant mortality. In order that this effort is meaningful and impacting, we have selected HIV/AIDS as the focus of the 2013 campaign.

Scientific and/or informative abstracts that reflect the focus of the symposium, which may encompass any aspect of health/ill health and/or the disparity issue, are being solicited. Those abstracts that are accepted for either poster or podium presentation will be presented during concurrent symposium sessions. The deadline for submission of abstracts is July 31, 2013. Please review our Abstract Guidelines prior to submitting your work. You may refer to the conference website ( for guidelines. For further information contact Mrs. Tammie Hugley (334)724-4540 or
