For the purposes of this award, a VA fellow or oncology trainee is someone:
(1) who has performed work at a Veterans Affairs facility or,
(2) whose research describes Veterans Affairs patients, or
(3) who uses data from Veterans Affairs in his or her research.
Your abstract must demonstrate one of the above qualifying criteria AND be selected as high-quality for scientific merit.
