Due June 9, 2023

The MR3 Network 2023 Scientific Retreat Planning Committee is now accepting abstracts for 15-minute presentations at our third annual scientific retreat, entitled “Moving from potential to real impact: Engaging with a broader community to improve translation of rehabilitation research innovations.”

Collaborations with partners in research and development should shape the design of technologies, devices, and interventions to ensure their effective dissemination and use. Our retreat will highlight research approaches to engaging partners in different aspects of the research process and along the translational continuum.

All abstracts will be peer reviewed, and speaking invitations will be based on the content of the abstract submission, available space, and overall program balance. Additionally, the submitted abstracts will be provided as a downloadable guide at the conference and potentially published as a compendium in a journal.

Example topics may include but are not limited to: community-engaged research; clinical research partnerships; research embedded in health systems; using human-centered design and design thinking; implementation science, dissemination, diffusion, uptake; intervention design and testing; development and testing of innovative technologies, measures, and tools; frameworks, models, and methods.
