Call for Nominations for the 
2020 AUA Research Forum:
“Early-Career Investigators Showcase”

Sunday, May 17, 2020
Walter E. Washington Convention Center — Washington, DC

The AUA Research Forum: “Early-Career Investigators Showcase” for 2020 is scheduled for Sunday, May 17.  The “Showcase” began in 2008, and is still the only AUA Annual Meeting session completely dedicated to the work of early-career investigators. This forum is meant to showcase basic, translational, and clinical research on innovative, relevant, and potentially impactful research projects that will be of high interest to the basic and clinical research communities. All nominated early-career investigators will present a poster, and up to ten nominees will be selected by a peer-review process to give an oral podium presentation. Talks will be judged by senior investigators, and awards will be presented for those judged to be the top three presenters. 

We are again enlisting the assistance of members of the AUA Research Council and Committees, all AUA Sections, and several specialty societies to identify those individuals and projects that exemplify the best that the field of urologic research has to offer. We are asking each member or group to identify one of their top early-career investigators to present a brief yet scientifically meritorious presentation on his or her most interesting, innovative work. These stellar investigators are typically easy to identify, even early in their research careers, as they may have already won awards and recognition at past Section or society meetings. This could now be an opportunity for them to have a platform at the AUA Annual Meeting!

All documents for each nomination must be compiled together and saved into a single .pdf package labeled as “Lastname.FirstInitial_2020Showcase.pdf” (For example:  Doe.J_2020Showcase.pdf). The package must be submitted by e-mail to [email protected]and received no later than Friday, December 6, 2019.
