​2014 Aging Institute Research Day -

April 10, 2014

About Research Day

The Aging Institute Research Day is an opportunity for researchers and clinicians from the University of Pittsburgh, UPMC, and Carnegie Mellon University to socialize, network, and view posters that showcase the latest in aging research.
The event will take place on Thursday, April 10, 2014 at the University Club at the University of Pittsburgh.


Awards will be presented for the best posters in these categories:
  • Junior faculty
  • Candidates for clinical or research doctorates
  • Post-doc (those who have completed a clinical or research doctorate and are still in training)
  • Clinical practitioners doing quality or practice improvement (clinicians, administrators, etc.)

Poster Abstract Submissions

A poster session is a graphic presentation of authors' reports.
An author illustrates his or her findings by displaying graphs, photos, diagrams and a small amount of text on the poster boards. The authors will then hold discussions with the registrants who are circulating among the poster boards.
Many authors find it helpful to present a brief introduction to answer the obvious questions and allow the remainder of the time for more in-depth discussions.
The author must remain by his or her poster board for the duration of the session.
If handouts accompany the poster, the author should bring approximately 75 copies that highlight contact information.
No audiovisual equipment is permitted for poster presentations.

Acceptance of Abstract Submissions

Poster abstract submissions will be accepted beginning on January 3, 2014. The last day to submit your poster abstract is February 21, 2014.
