Scientific posters selected for live presentation at the 2020 Indiana CTSI Annual Meeting

August 27, 2020

Out of 65 video submissions, 50 scientific posters will be presented live during the 2020 Indiana CTSI Annual Meeting . Those who have been selected will deliver two-minute live presentations of their research during the meeting and answer any audience questions for up to three minutes per presentation.

The selected posters highlight research across the translational spectrum from basic science to community implementation and policy, including some related to the COVID-19 pandemic, and addressing health inequities and racial disparities.

The virtual poster presentations during the annual meeting will occur as ten concurrent breakout rooms, with five presenters selected for each room. Annual meeting participants will be able to choose which breakout room they want to join during the live session.

A recorded version of the scientific poster presentations will be available to view on the Indiana CTSI website ahead of the annual meeting to give participants more insight into which poster session they would like to attend.
