Residents who are co-authors on PRSYM abstracts can apply for additional support to attend the PRSYM meeting through ACR. Click here for more information about PRSYM’s Abstract Award. 


CARRA is not accepting abstracts for the 2023 ASM.  2023 ACR PRSYM abstracts were due January 24. As a reminder, all publications and presentations that result from CARRA data, biospecimens, grants or from use of other CARRA resources require CARRA Publications Committee review prior to submission or presentation. If your CARRA-related abstract was accepted as a poster for the ACR PRSYM 2023 meeting, submit your final poster for CARRA review 7 days prior to submitting your final poster to ACR PRSYM here.  

Email [email protected] if you have questions about CARRA’s Publication Review process.

CARRA Grant Abstracts

Each awardee of a CARRA and/or a CARRA-Arthritis Foundation grant is expected to submit an abstract and attend the CARRA Annual Meeting(s) until the project is complete/final results have been presented. As there are no CARRA abstracts this year, each awardee is expected to submit an abstract (if data are available) to PRSYM. Newly awarded projects/projects that have not yet started are exempt from this requirement for 2023.


CARRA members may be eligible to receive financial assistance to attend the 2023 ASM. Visit the CARRA Members tab on our Meeting Site to review our Travel Policy. The deadline for requests for airfare scholarships has passed. The deadline for members to submit receipts and requests for reimbursement is April 17, 2023.
