Pediatric Research Day event set for Sept. 8

June 23, 2010

Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital is requesting abstract submissions for its biennial Pediatric Research Day, to be held Sept. 8, at the University Fitness and Conference Center. Abstracts are due by July 15. Pediatric Research Day is an opportunity to showcase ongoing research on children’s health issues and identify new collaborations that will help produce tomorrow’s breakthroughs.

Researchers, physicians, residents, nurses, staff and students from all Penn State campuses who contribute to the mission of advancing pediatric research or feel that their research may have the potential to do so can submit abstracts of new work or work presented in the past two years and a statement of research interests to be included in the abstract book. Accepted abstracts will be presented in either poster or lecture format. Posters presented recently at local or national meetings are suitable for presentation.
