Welcome to the Proposal Submission Portal 
Please read the following instructions before starting the proposal submission process 

The Myotonic Dystrophy Foundation (MDF) is pleased to announce its call for abstracts for poster presentations of research related to myotonic dystrophy (DM) to showcase at the 2023 MDF Annual Conference.

Poster displays should be self-explanatory, concise, and visually appealing.  This opportunity is specifically for doctoral students and postdoctoral researchers focused on any type of DM.  This opportunity is also for representatives of companies and researchers developing therapies for DM.

Poster sessions should combine a visual representation of the findings of a paper/study - the poster- with the opportunity for the individualized, informal discussion of the presenter's work.  MDF is thrilled to make this opportunity available at this year's conference in two formats: 

1) Hybrid-an opportunity for presenters to share their posters with in-person conference attendees, including other researchers, clinicians, individuals with DM, and their families, AND a virtual "booth" for presenters to display their posters for attendees: and 2) Virtual- a virtual poster to present research findings for conference attendees. 

Submissions for the MDF Annual Conference Poster session are to be submitted by July 15, 2023, 5:00 pm PST.

Members of the MDF Scientific Advisory Committee and other selected experts will review abstracts.  Selected poster presenters need to be available to showcase their posters at the conference on September 8th and 9th

​​​​​​​We will notify selected poster presenters on July 31, 2023. ​​​​​​​

Contact Dr. Nadine Skinner, MDF Research Coordinator (nadine.skinner@myotonic.org), for more information.
