The American Spinal Injury Association (ASIA) invites Researchers, Clinicians, and other SCI Professionals to submit Abstracts for Oral, Poster/Short Talk Presentations, and Courses to be presented at the 2020 Annual Scientific Meeting, May 3-6 in New Orleans.

While ASIA is interested in ALL areas of spinal cord injury-related submissions, we emphasize themes and topics most mentioned in evaluation feedback and requested by committees. For the 2020 conference, there will be a priority on translational research submissions.

Prioritized Theme: Translational Research
Qualified Translational Research abstracts cover topics that address bench to bedside to bench translational research (see definitions below). Each submission should be problem/system-focused and include a basic science and/or pre-clinical researcher AND a clinician and/or clinical researcher. Inclusion of at least one early career presenter (Assistant Professor or lower) is encouraged.

For the purpose of this abstract call, we define bench to bedside translational research as: the path taken to translate basic science/pre-clinical animal research into clinical research and/or practice, or to increase our understanding of important disease processes.

Bedside to bench translational research is defined as: the movement of ideas/concepts/questions from the clinic to basic science/pre-clinical animal research in a way that drives the development of specific testable hypotheses in appropriate animal models, that will ultimately improve existing interventions or develop new interventions, models or approaches in humans.
