We are pleased to announce A CALL FOR ABSTRACTS for our 7th Annual Pediatric Science Days Symposium.
This exciting event will be held on the SLU campus on Thursday April 11 - Friday April 12, 2013. All who are faculty members at SLU or who are trainees, and whose research work relates to any aspect of pediatrics (basic, translational, clinical, epidemiology, outcomes, ethics, health law, etc.), whether or not they are affiliated with the Department of Pediatrics, are warmly invited to submit their abstracts. A submitted abstract may represent new work or it may have been previously presented (or will be presented) at a national/international/regional research meeting. It cannot have been previously presented at a SLU Pediatric Science Days Symposium. All work submitted by a trainee MUST be sponsored by a faculty member. Abstracts will be presented as platform presentations or as posters.
The abstract form should be filled out and submitted electronically to Kavitha Krishnarao (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please submit your abstract(s) by the deadline: Monday, March 11, 2013. Any abstract that does not follow specific instructions will be returned to sender.
About Pediatric Science Days: This event was designed to highlight pediatric-related research and to promote cross-campus interactions related to our field. Each year we host a distinguished academic pediatrician. We are very honored to be hosting as this year's Visiting Professor Dr. Jamie Renbarger. Dr. Renbarger, Associate Professor of Pediatrics and Academic Section Chief, is the Nora Letzter Scholar in Pediatric Hematology/Oncology at Indiana University School of Medicine. She serves as the Associate Director for the Indiana Institute for Personalized Medicine. She is an NIH-funded investigator and also a recipient of the 2010 Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers, a highly prestigious award given to only 100 of the top scientists in this country. Her fascinating research program is focused on pharmacogenetic determinants of drug responses, with an emphasis on maternal and child health therapeutics.
