Call for Research Posters

The Association for the Advancement of Restorative Medicine (AARM) is pleased to announce a Call for Research Posters for the  2018 Annual International Restorative Medicine Conference  to be held September 27-30 in Burlington, Vermont. The conference theme is Trends in Nutrition, Pain Management and Mind-Body Therapies. AARM research poster sessions are an excellent opportunity to present your latest research findings and to connect with a large audience of your peers. Poster authors will give short (1 to 2 minute) presentations on their posters on Saturday September 29, and will also have the opportunity to informally discuss their work with attendees during conference breaks. Accepted research posters will be on display from September 27- 29.

Areas of Interest

We invite research poster submissions on topics that contribute to the field of complementary and integrative medicine. Specifically, the AARM is interested in research that investigates possible treatments for, and elucidates potential mechanisms and underlying causes of chronic health conditions. AARM will consider posters along a range of methodology, including reports of clinical trials, case reports, and epidemiological observations. Studies may examine modalities such as nutritional supplementation, diet, botanical medicine, physical medicine, and mind-body medicine, or multi-modal approaches. Basic science topics will be considered if they have compelling relevance to complementary and integrative medicine.  Animal studies will not be considered.

AARM Research Poster Awards

The AARM Research Posters Committee will evaluate poster presentations and posters during the conference, and select one winner in each of four categories: Nutrition and Nutrigenomics;  Phytocompounds; Neurobiology and Pain; and Mind-Body Medicine.

Each AARM Research Poster Award winner will receive a cash prize of $150 and a certificate. AARM Research Poster Awards are sponsored by Restorative Formulations.


The Journal of Restorative Medicine (JRM) announces a special thematic issue devoted to the abstracts of research posters accepted for the AARM annual conference in 2018. These abstracts will be made available online shortly after the conference. Primary authors of accepted posters will also be invited to submit full papers to the Journal. Please note, acceptance of a research poster does not imply acceptance of a full article or preclude peer review of that article.
