In 2019, the CHOP Research Institute will bring together its largest community-building events, CHOP Research Poster Day and the Scientific Symposium, to create a two-day celebration of all-things-research. Poster Day, normally held in February of each year, will take place on May 21. The annual Scientific Symposium will take place on the following day, May 22.

This change is intended to streamline and enrich these CHOP community-based events. Participants can expect more opportunities to interact and to engage with colleagues at both CHOP and the University of Pennsylvania. Scientific presentations, receptions and award ceremonies will be supplemented with additional time to network and celebrate a year of research and innovation. The entire CHOP community is invited to attend.

This year marks the 28th anniversary of CHOP Research Poster Day, an annual celebration of the groundbreaking research happening throughout Children's Hospital. This event includes poster presentations from researchers-in-training who will share their exciting discoveries with the CHOP community. Please join us in acknowledging the valuable contributions of the next generation of pediatric scientists and clinicians.
