Special Abstract Category Descriptors

Advancing Health Equity

This category is for research studies that advance the understanding of, and ultimately improves health equity and eliminates health disparities. This may include, but is not limited to, projects investigating how genomic services can be deployed in diverse health care settings and underserved communities and addressing underrepresentation of diverse populations in genomic research. Up to two abstracts will be selected for 10-minute podium presentations for the CGA-IGC Annual meeting. Any abstracts submitted for the “Advancing Health Equity” category but not selected for the 2 podium presentations will be given full consideration for podium and poster presentations with the rest of the abstract pool.

*While submitting an abstract, please check if your abstract is related to the above description on the last step of submission.

Collaborative Research

This category is for research studies (including, but not limited, to those with only preliminary data) which would be strengthened by increasing the scale of the investigation through collaborative research with others in the CGA-IGC membership. Up to two abstracts will be selected for 10 minute podium presentations at the CGA-IGC Annual Meeting to present their work to date and facilitate potential collaboration from among interested colleagues within the CGA-IGC. Submitting authors should indicate their interest in having their abstract considered for this special category at the time of submission, and will be asked to provide additional information about the type of collaboration being sought. Any abstracts submitted for the “Collaborative Research” category but not selected for the 2 podium presentations will be given full consideration for podium and poster presentations with the rest of the abstract pool.

*While submitting an abstract, please check if your abstract is related to the above description on the last step of submission.

Case Reports

A case report may describe an unusual etiology, an unusual or unknown disorder, a challenging differential diagnosis, an unusual setting for care, information that cannot be reproduced due to ethical reasons, unusual or puzzling clinical features, improved or unique technical procedures, unusual interactions, rare or novel adverse reactions to care, or new insight into the pathogenesis of disease. Sharing individual patient experiences with clinical colleagues is an essential component of learning from each other. Case reports constitute important information with regard to rare events and may be considered as anecdotal evidence. Case reports may stimulate the generation of new hypotheses, and thus may support the emergence of new research. Up to two abstracts submitted for the “Case Reports” category may be selected for 5-minute podium presentations at the CGA-IGC Annual Meeting.

*While submitting an abstract, please check if your abstract is related to the above description on the first and last step of submission.
