20% of survey complete.

A scientific abstract contains data from a study that has been completed. The Study itself may represent a pilot study or may be the results of a large trial. Submitting the protocol for an on-going large trial is also acceptable. Descriptive or observational research abstracts may be submitted as long as there is a research question, the methods are described and results are presented. You must focus your thoughts as the space on the abstract is limited.
