    How to Write a Persuasive Abstract

    Andre Van Wijen, PhD

    Scientific communication promotes interactions among investigators in basic, clinical and pharmaceutical settings. Presentation of results at international meetings represents a critical opportunity to scrutinize our conceptual and technical ideas. Meeting Abstracts are invitations to discuss data and interpretations with our academic peers. Published papers are the codification of our ideas in the scientific literature. Manuscript Abstracts are the first window into the mind of the writer and typically the most frequently read text of published papers. Investigators at early career stages in the US and abroad differ in their training and exposure to competent mentors who can provide guidance in how to write a cogent Abstract. In this ASBMR Webinar, we will begin to equalize the knowledge base of our community (‘leveling the playing field’) by discussing with you - as active participants - both the methods and philosophy for writing sound Abstracts. In addition, we will share what strategies you can apply to maximize the impact of your Abstract.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Re-acquaint themselves with available resources for developing or improving fundamental writing skills.
    • Comprehend the basic philosophy of Abstracts as a vehicle to disseminate knowledge and inspire our peers.
    • Adopt structured writing methods that can facilitate the communication of our scientific work.
