CAP22 Abstract Program

Submissions to the College of American Pathologists (CAP) 2022 Abstract Program are no longer being accepted. Corresponding authors will be notified regarding submission status on May 27th. Accepted submissions will appear on this Web site as a Web-only supplement to the September 2022 issue. While the CAP22 meeting will have a hybrid format, accepted authors will present their research as a physical poster at the meeting; an ePoster component will not be offered this year. CAP Junior Members who have their abstracts accepted are eligible for cash awards as part of the Top 5 Junior Member Abstract Program. Top 5 winners will be notified on August 17th.
