The overall goal of the abstract is to show how your proposed study will extend prior research in the area, briefly encapsulate the study methods (particularly any innovative methods), as well as provide the key public health and clinical significance of potential study findings. Keep in mind that your goal is to provide enough information for potential readers to make informed decisions on whether to read the rest of your proposal. The abstract is the teaser or appetizer. If it doesn’t grab the reader’s attention now, you may have permanently missed your window of opportunity.
