Abstracts wanted for 2016 Pediatric Research Day

HERSHEY, Pa. — Pediatric Research Day will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursday, May 26, at the Hershey Lodge. The event is an opportunity to showcase ongoing research on children’s health issues and to identify new collaborations that will help produce tomorrow’s breakthroughs.

All Penn State researchers, physicians, residents, staff and students — from any campus — who contribute to the mission of advancing pediatric research or who believe that their research may have the potential to do so are invited to submit abstracts of new work or work presented at national meetings in the past two years to be included in the Research Day 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. Basic science and clinical abstracts are equally encouraged. Nurses, medical students and graduate students are also encouraged to contribute.

A keynote lecture will be given by Dr. Jonathan Finkelstein, vice chair for quality and outcomes, Department of Medicine, Boston Children's Hospital, and associate professor of pediatrics, Harvard Medical School.

Abstracts are being received through Friday, Feb. 26. Only completed abstracts will be accepted. To submit an abstract and register for Pediatric Research Day, log onto the website.
