Inaugural 2018 Maternal & Child Health Research Institute Symposium

The Stanford Maternal and Child Health Research Institute invites you to its inaugural research symposium! This event will bring together faculty, staff, trainees, postdocs, students and all members of the community 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. He will deliver his keynote address on “Stem Cell Niches in the Bone Marrow.” 

The symposium will include poster presentations where attendees can interact directly with those who are advancing maternal and child health research. 

Attendees will have the opportunity to sign up for an exciting speed dating session at the symposium. Attendees may "speed date" with one or more of our 17 faculty participants and ask questions related to their career path, research, common interests, or just say a friendly hello.

The symposium is free and open to all including faculty, staff, trainees, postdocs, students, and all other interested members of the community.
