The Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC will hold its annual Research Day on Wednesday, March 25, 2015 at the USC Galen Center.
The day-long event dedicated to scientific inquiry and discovery is open to all Ostrow students and faculty members, including those from the USC Division of Biokinesiology and Physical Therapy as well as the USC Chan Division of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy.
Individuals wishing to present research may submit their abstracts no later than Feb. 17, 2015.
Information provided will appear in the Research Day 2015 booklet presented at the event. Abstracts submitted after Feb. 17, 2015, will not be published in the booklet.

Follow AADR/IADR guidelines for your submission and keep your title to 10 words or less and your abstract at a maximum of 250 words.
The abstract must contain objectives, methods, results, data and statistical analysis, conclusions and acknowledgment of support. In addition, each participant will be required to attach a PDF alongside their abstract submission for clerical purposes.
Again abstracts are due by Feb. 17, 2015.
If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact Ms. Donna Castillo at (213) 821-5554 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
