Call for abstracts

Submit your abstracts now!

During the programmes there will be opportunities for both 8-minute and 3-minute oral presentations selected from submitted abstracts.

If you are a past or present holder of a Kidney Research UK personal career award (e.g. allied health professional, training, senior and intermediate (formerly post-doctoral) fellowships; intercalated degrees; PhD studentship), please submit your abstract for consideration by the 6 August 2021.

We always encourage and expect that all recipients of these awards will present at least once or twice during the term of their active grant and consider presenting subsequent research immediately following their completed career award.

We welcome abstracts from research associates and researchers employed on other grants funded by Kidney Research UK, although opportunities to present may be subject to availability within the programme.

How to submit your abstract:

  • Abstract submissions are required to be in a Word document, on one side of A4, and include the following:
    • abstract title
    • reference to author/s and institution/s
    • abstract (not to exceed 360 words) subheadings disallowed
    • lay summary (not to exceed 100 words). Please write bearing in mind the audience won’t all be experts who readily understand your research and this summary needs to be simple and non-technical.

  • Send your abstracts by email to with the subject heading ‘Abstract for Driving discoveries: connecting fellows and students’.
