Poster Presentations:

On May 26-27, Virginia Drug Discovery Rx is being held virtually, by Zoom. In addition to great Keynote and Invited Speakers, this year we will have three 10-minute “poster talks” that will be selected from submitted posters. Note that the posters are NOT restricted to COVID-19-related topics, and can cover any therapeutic area. We welcome posters in four categories:

i) Target ID/Validation and Disease Biology

ii) Medicinal Chemistry

iii) Translational Pharmacology and Animal Models

iv) University Resources for Drug Discovery

How will we have posters for a Virtual meeting? We’re so glad you asked!

1. Submit an abstract (form here) by email to vaddc1@gmail.com. Deadline April 30, 2021.

2. Once your abstract is accepted, you will be invited to prepare your poster as normal, and instead of printing it, you will send a .jpg/.jpeg version (not .pdf or .pptx) to us and our friends at the Fralin Life Sciences Institute will put it in a virtual reality poster session (see 3. below!). You will also need to record a ≤ 60 sec Zoom video summary describing your work. Conference attendees and judges will be able to enter a room and wander from poster to poster to see not only your poster in high definition, but watch a 1 min video of you describing your work. Detailed instructions and deadlines will be provided in your abstract acceptance notice (on or before Saturday, May 1). 3. Sound far-fetched?
