2018 Industry-Sponsored Posters

NAPNAP is accepting abstracts for industry-sponsored posters for the 2018 National Conference, to be held March 19-22, 2018 at the Hyatt Regency Chicago.

The industry-sponsored poster abstracts are reviewed by the Research Committee, but at a later time than the Research/Clinical Project abstracts. These abstracts and related posters depict the outcomes of research that has been sponsored by industry. The posters are excluded from the competitive judging process. There is also a fee associated with submission and review of these abstracts. The call for industry-sponsored poster abstracts is announced separately. For more information, please contact Simone Daley, Program Specialist, at 917-746-8295 or sdaley@napnap.org

Identification of an Industry-Sponsored Abstract

Abstract should be clearly submitted as an “industry sponsored” abstract. If the principal investigator received some unrestricted support for a project, but maintained full control over the design, implementation, and analysis of a project, it is not “industry sponsored”. An example of this would be a NAPNAP Immunization grant sponsored project. If the researchers or presenters are employees of a pharmaceutical or related corporation, or the project was otherwise directed or solely funded by a corporation, the poster is considered to be industry-sponsored.
