Poster Exhibit Application
About the Conference
We proudly invite you to the FD/MAS Community Conference: a weekend of education, connection, and collaborative research.
The 2023 Conference is an opportunity to bring together people diagnosed with FD/MAS, their families, FD/MAS clinicians, researchers, and emerging researchers to break silos, build community, and create alignment to advance research and treatments for fibrous dysplasia/McCune Albright Syndrome (FD/MAS).
FD/MAS Poster Exhibit
The 2023 Fibrous Dysplasia/McCune Albright Syndrome (FDMAS) Alliance Research Poster Exhibit will be displayed in person throughout the 2023 FD/MAS Alliance Community Conference: Facing the Future – Together, in Silver Spring, MD, September 8 -10. The poster exhibition will showcase researcher and advocate work to attendees, including clinicians, researchers, patients, families, and sponsors. All those selected for inclusion in the poster exhibition will be asked to create a 3-minute video to accompany and explain their poster in layperson’s language. The video will be linked to a QR code displayed alongside the poster so that attendees can learn more about each presenter’s work.
All those working to understand FD/MAS and improve the lives of those living with FD/MAS are invited to submit an abstract and present a poster showcasing their work.
FD/MAS Alliance will also award a small number of travel stipends to undergraduate and graduate students, junior faculty, or researchers early in their careers. Those who wish to be considered for a poster scholarship can indicate so on their poster application. The scholarship will grant each recipient a travel reimbursement of up to $500 in recognition of their work. Recipients will be selected by the FD/MAS Alliance Scientific Advisory Council and will be notified by August 1st, 2023.
