The APSR is pleased to announce the availability of Awards for two members to attend the CHEST Annual Meeting 2018 in San Antonio, Texas, USA, 6–10 October 2018.

Post-congress requirements:

  • Each awardee is required to send a report (circa 500 words) of their experience at the Meeting, together with their photo at the Meeting, to the APSR Secretariat within one month after the Meeting. The report may be published on the Young Investigators webpage, APSR Bulletin and/or Newsletter.

Abstract submission:

  • Deadline: 2 March 2018
  • Procedure: See chestmeeting.chestnet.org
    (Note: The same website is used for each year's Meeting, so the CHEST 2018 details will not appear until sometime after the CHEST 2017 Meeting.)
