The Office of Women in Medicine and Science (OWIMS) is seeking Abstract submissions for Women’s Health and Sex Differences Research Day.  The title of the event is “The Gender Gap: Pain  & Addiction” and it will be held on April 6th, 2017, at the Bowman Gray Center for Medical Education. Abstracts are  due by December 16, 2016.

All faculty, students (medical, graduate, PA, and other), medical residents and post-doctoral fellows are encouraged to submit abstracts (new or recycled) for consideration for oral or poster presentation.

Prizes will be awarded for the top oral presentation, top student poster and top resident/post-doctoral student poster (faculty submissions not eligible for prizes).
