All are welcome to come together May 2 and 3, 2023, for Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Research Institute’s largest community-building event — CHOP Research Poster Day and the Scientific Symposium. The 2023 symposium theme, “Bugs and Breakthroughs: Pediatric Medicine Through the Lens of the Microbiome,” will focus on the advancements that CHOP researchers have made in this exciting arena.

At the two-day celebration of all-things-research, participants can expect opportunities to interact and engage with colleagues from CHOP and the University of Pennsylvania. Scientific presentations, a reception, and an award ceremony will be supplemented with time to network and recognize 100 years of research and innovation at CHOP Research Institute.

Michael Silverman, MD, PhD, and Joseph Zackular, PhD will co-chair the Scientific Symposium sessions, which will take place in the first-floor auditorium at The Hub for Clinical Collaboration.

Keynote speakers include Mariana Xavier Byndloss, DVM, PhD, assistant professor of Pathology, Microbiology and Immunology at Vanderbilt University, and Michael Fischbach, PhD, associate professor in the departments of Bioengineering and Microbiology and Immunology at Stanford University.

All members of the CHOP community who are conducting research are invited to participate in the 30th Annual CHOP Research Poster Day. Abstract submission is required for participation in the poster sessions and will open in March. Poster sessions will take place May 2 and 3 in the Colket Translational Research Building, followed by a reception and poster awards ceremony in the Hub Lobby May 3.

The Office of Academic Training and Outreach Programs (ATOP) and Office of Faculty Development coordinate CHOP Research Poster Day and the Scientific Symposium.
