WMSS: Deadline for Abstracts is June 16, 2021

The 10th Anniversary Women in Medicine and Science Symposium (WMSS) will take place on September 22, 2021, 3:00-5:00pm. WMSS will highlight the achievements of women faculty and trainees at Brigham and Women’s Healthcare. The Symposium will celebrate the accomplishments of women faculty and trainees across different disciplines – including basic science, clinical and translational research, clinical innovation, and education – with the goal of strengthening the BWH community.


May 11 – June 16, 2021


The call for abstracts for oral and poster presentations is open to all women faculty and trainees (instructors, assistant professors, associate professors, professors, residents, clinical fellows, research fellows) in a BWH-affiliated department. Authorship should include all project team members. All faculty and trainees are encouraged to attend, whether they make a presentation or not. Since this is not considered a national or regional meeting, previously presented talks are admissible. Furthermore, presenting at this meeting is not a deterrent for future national/regional meetings.


The review committee will select four abstracts to be given as oral presentations and six to be displayed as poster presentations at the Women in Medicine and Science Symposium on Wednesday, September 22, 2021. Please note that there are not separate categories for the submission of abstracts for presentation – the Selection Committee reserves the right to choose which abstracts will be chosen for oral presentations and which will be selected for poster presentations. Submitted abstracts may be included in an event booklet.
