Call for Abstracts
ABSTRACT SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
The primary aim of an abstract is to describe your scientific work in a clear, concise, and correct way. Please, apply your skills of proper academic writing while submitting an abstract and do not exceed the word limit.
Great news for you! Here, at the FIRMST-2020, you are welcome to present your scientific work of ANY type and on ANY topic concerning the Biomedical Sciences.
We require abstracts to be written in ENGLISH. The word limit is 350 words (not including the heading, author information, and references). Note that the design of the “Materials and methods” section varies depending on the type of the research done.
A good abstract should provide answers to four questions:
What is the subject of your research?
What was the reason for doing the research in first place?
What results are thereby obtained?
Why are these findings useful and/or important?
The purpose of FIRMST is to generate novel approaches to challenging issues, so no plagiarism is accepted.
Please, note that the form of your participation in the Forum (oral or poster presentation) will be defined by the experts and the members of the organizing committee and announced not later than March 30, 2020

STRUCTURE OF AN ABSTRACT
The title should be both concise, informative, and interesting. You can also use relevant metaphors to attract attention of the audience.
INTRODUCTION (Scientific background)
Provide some general information on the subject, state clearly the rationale of your study. Please, put an explicit description of the aim of your research in one sentence – it’s a cornerstone of any scientific work!
MATERIALS & METHODS
As mentioned before, the structure of the “Materials and methods” section varies depending on the type of the research done.
> Original (experimental or clinical) research. Describe the subject(s) you studied (molecules, cell lines, tissues, organs, animal or human population) and state the experimental approach or the study design, including your variables. Please, avoid going in too much detail.
> Case-study. Indicate the methods of clinical investigation you used.
> Scientific review. Specify the databases you used, inclusion/exclusion criteria and the process of the search for literature.
Describe your findings after making sure the results are statistically credible and accurate. Focus on the most important results and do not distort the data to simplify it!
The conclusion should summarize your results and more importantly, tell what they imply. Make sure all your conclusions run from the findings you observed in the research. You can also bring up with the primary take home message/answer to your question. Try to place your findings in perspective.
Choose five terms or short phrases which are central to your research. Remember that the key words are used to successfully navigate other scientists to find and cite your paper.
We kindly ask you to provide concise references to the sources you used in your abstract (up to 5 items). Citation style is Nature.
Put the reference number in the end of the sentence BEFORE the dot.
Please, check grammar and spelling before submitting.
YOU SHOULD NOT INCLUDE PICTURES, TABLES, OR OTHER FIGURES IN THE ABSTRACT!
