Inaugural 2018 Child Health Research Institute Symposium

The Stanford Child Health Research Institute invites you to its inaugural research symposium! This event will bring together faculty, trainees, students, and postdocs to explore the latest developments and innovations in maternal and child health research. Attendees will learn about the research funded by the Institute across campus, the programs and resources available to advance research in this area, and the researchers and scientists who are making an impact in the maternal and child health community. 

This event will feature keynote speaker, Sean Morrison, Ph.D., the director of the Children’s Medical Center Research Institute at the University of Texas Southwestern, the Mary McDermott Cook Chair in Pediatric Genetics, the Kathryne and Gene Bishop Distinguished Chair in Pediatric Research, and a Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator.
