The Royal College of Pathologists invites doctors-in-training, transfusion practitioners, and transfusion scientists to submit abstracts for presentation at the Advances in Transfusion Medicine Symposium. Abstracts can be on any aspect of transfusion medicine and should present new data from studies, audits, quality improvement projects or systematic reviews. Abstracts submitted by the 1st July deadline will be considered for the following opportunities.
There will be 4 oral presentations at the symposium. We will select:

- the two highest scoring abstracts on clinical or laboratory studies or systematic reviews
Each author will receive free meeting registration for the 26th November, as well as a small travel grant.
Authors will also be selected to present a poster on the 26th November. All poster authors will receive free meeting registration for the 26th November. Posters can be on audits, quality improvement projects, systematic reviews, or clinical or laboratory studies.
All abstracts presented at the conference will be published in Transfusion Medicine. All abstracts must be received before the July 1st deadline via e-mail email@example.com. Incomplete or late submissions will not be reviewed. All submissions must include a clear and concise abstract of no more than 300 words in English that satisfies all of the abstract guidelines
