Dear Colleagues, 

The Medical Research Society of Pakistan (MRSP) cordially invites you to attend our 20th Annual Meeting to be held at Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre, Lahore on Saturday May 25, 2013


The Medical Research Society of Pakistan (MRSP) established in 1985 aims to promote medical research in Pakistan by providing a close interaction between scientists within the country and abroad as its membership extends to the UK and the United States.  The society has evolved into a forum for the presentation of current research activities taking place at various institutes across Pakistan, each of these meetings has enabled intellectual cross-talk between scientists and medics working in different disciplines of medical research. The one day meeting is an opportunity for researchers to present their original research.  We anticipate this meeting will provide a platform for future research and collaboration.

One key feature of our society and the meetings we hold is that we encourage young researchers to come forward and present their work and develop the traits of critical thinking, moral reasoning, and problem solving. In the past we have also used the meetings to communicate valuable information for researchers such as how and where to seek grants; study design and implementation strategies, research ethics, and plagiarism have also been discussed.

We strongly encourage you and other researchers from your institute to submit abstracts for the meeting.  

Please find enclosed an ABSTRACT submission Form for the 20th Annual Meeting to be held on May 25, 2013 at Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre, Lahore. Click here to download a copy of the Abstract Form. Please submit your paper through email to the Conference Secretariat.
