TOS’s poster sessions run all the hours that the exhibit hall is open, but the only time you can meet and talk to the presenters about their research is during the lunchtime poster sessions. Please note that each poster is displayed for one day only, so check back daily for more cutting-edge research! Full abstracts will be available on the website, in printed abstract book and in the app once the embargo lifts on Tuesday, Nov. 13 at 12:00 a.m. ET (midnight).
