Posters presented at MBCC will be included as part of the continuing medical education (CME)/continuing education (CE)–certified conference sessions. The primary purpose of Physicians’ Education Resource®, LLC (PER®), CME/CE activities is to advance the professional development of our learners in order to increase knowledge and improve the diagnosis and treatment of patients. To maintain the flow of the most current information to our learners and serve the public interest, the content of PER® may include information planned, presented, or authored by employees of industry. PER® is committed to the integrity of the science presented at its CME/CE activities and employs a rigorous peer review process to ensure that integrity. PER® maintains control of all content and plans all its activities in compliance with the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education Standards for Commercial Support.

Please note that for lead presenters, poster content will be limited to basic science research (eg, preclinical research, drug discovery) or the processes/methodologies of research, themselves unrelated to a specific disease or compound/drug.

The content of your poster must not be related to clinical applications of the research/discovery or clinical recommendations concerning the business lines or products of your employer. The content of the information with which you are involved will promote quality in healthcare or advances in science and will not promote a specific product or pharmaceutical/biotech company.
