[#DIV28SUPER] Call for Posters

Trans-Disease Decision Processes and Therapeutics Conference – May 25, 2017

Call for Poster Submissions


Trainees and early career investigators are invited to submit posters to the inaugural meeting of the Society of Trans-Disease Decision Processes and Therapeutics (TDDPT), to be held May 25, 2017 at the Sheraton Boston Hotel.  This meeting precedes the 29th Annual Convention of the Association for Psychological Science in Boston, MA.  Applications for abstract submission are due by May 1, 2017.


This is an opportunity to present novel research on the conference themes such as, though not limited to:


1.      self-regulatory dysfunction processes evident across multiple disorders and/or limited to one or a small number of disorders;

2.      whether self-regulatory dysfunction is evident prior to onset or emerges after disorder onset; 

3.      identification of those self-regulatory dysfunction processes that have a genetic basis and may function as endophenotypes;

4.      exploration of interventions to ameliorate self-regulatory dysfunction to decrease disease burden;

5.      determination of whether the interventions shown to improve the self-regulatory dysfunction in one disorder effectively operate in all the disorders in which this dysfunction is present. Such themes could be addressed at multiple levels of analysis (e.g., behavioral, neural, and genetic).


To help defer travel costs to the TDDPT meeting, up to five travel awards of $200 each will be given to investigators who submit abstracts.  In addition, two poster submissions will be awarded $500 each for excellence in research and presentation at the conference.


Ten symposium presentations will precede the poster session on May 25, as listed in the program below.  For more information on free registration and abstract submission, please visit our website at https://www.transdiseasedecisions.com


Questions may be directed to Warren K. Bickel, Ph.D. at wkbickel@vtc.vt.edu or Patsy Marshall at 540-526-2015 or patsym@vtc.vt.edu.
