BB&D 5th Annual Research Day

This year, the annual event will take place virtually via Zoom on Friday January 2021! We aim to bring together investigators, trainees and staff across the Theme and from the broader pediatric research community in affiliated hospitals and other institutions, to share, learn and interact online. We have a great half-day planned – the program schedule will include a keynote talk by Dr. Danny Pine, lightning talks and an e-poster gallery.

We invite all members and trainees to submit a research abstract. This year, as there are no physical space limitations, we are happy to accept all abstracts for the poster session. All abstract submissions will also be considered for lightning talks.

Abstract submission is now closed.
