Abstract Submission

The purpose of the meeting is to stimulate discussions, to highlight urology research in the area, and to develop a collaborative and multidisciplinary approach to answer urological research questions. Therefore, it is acceptable to submit an abstract in research, project, or theoretical/conceptual format, as well as work that was previously presented or published elsewhere as an abstract or manuscript. Most professional societies accept abstracts that have been presented at a local conference. Therefore, presentation and discussion of your new data/project at the Research Day will NOT disqualify you from presenting at national or international meetings.

Abstracts submitted by trainees are eligible for awards.

  • Three abstracts will be selected for oral presentations at the meeting, basic, translational and clinical category.
  • All other abstracts will be presented as posters. The winning posters will be determined by the judging panel at the meeting (April 24, 2020)


  • March 30, 2020 by 11 PM to be considered for a trainee award

  • April 12, 2020 for all other abstracts from faculty, staff, and trainees not competing for an award
  • If you need to submit a late abstract, please contact Dr. Cindy Amundsen

Format for Virtual Posters: Instructions for virtual poster presentations will be posted here soon.
