Abstract Submission

Abstract Submission


Dr. Antonio J. Gonzaga was one of the pillars of research and training in infectious diseases in the Philippines. He was a constant source of encouragement and support for young infectious disease fellows. He pioneered the creation of the University of the Philippines-Philippine General Hospital Tuberculosis Study Group and the establishment of the TB Research Laboratory of the Philippine General Hospital-Medical Research Laboratory, which generated relevant quality researches. The Dr. Antonio Gonzaga Memorial Research Hour has been created to celebrate and honor Dr. Gonzaga’s research achievements in the field of infectious diseases.

Abstracts must contain original material neither published nor presented elsewhere prior to the PSMID 2022 Convention (in print or electronically). Abstracts of which only parts of the data had been submitted at other conventions, are allowed for submission.

Abstracts concerning a still ongoing study can be submitted. In case of acceptance it is of course possible to implement latest findings in the final presentation (ePoster, slides). Multiple submissions by one author/author group covering the SAME study/results are not allowed and will result in rejection. Submissions of different studies by the same one author/author group are allowed.

What to do when the Presenting Author changes after Submission:
The initial abstract has to be deleted and the new presenting author must submit the abstract once more via his/her own record. Make sure to delete the first submitted abstract as double submission of the same abstract will result in rejection of both. Kindly email research@psmid.org to make sure that this is accomplished.
