WORLDSymposium is keeping the section “Late-Breaking Science Friday” on the 2021 Program. Up to 12 abstracts may be selected for this section, based on the quality and content of the submitted abstracts.

Abstracts are required to be no more than 300 words in length and may not contain images or figures.

(Late-Breaking abstracts are only published in program materials created for attendees, and are NOT published in Molecular Genetics and Metabolism.)
