Call for Posters

The WSAAI Annual Scientific Session will include poster presentations of observations by allergists/immunologists and fellows-in-training in addition to a superb program of the latest developments in the diagnosis and treatment of allergic disorders and its variations. This will afford an opportunity for meaningful discussion and constructive critique of recent research finding made at the bedside, the clinic and in the laboratory. We urge you to participate by submitting your clinical research findings for consideration by our Poster Review Committee. In preparing your abstract organize it into: a statement of purpose; statement of methods; and summary of results in sufficient detail to support the conclusion reached. Avoid promise of additional data.
