Four lectures, ten faculty research vignettes, six oral presentations, 52 poster presentations, and a cumulative total of 725 attendees made up the Department of Pediatrics’ Annual Research Week, which took place virtually from May 26-29, 2020. The live-streamed format – which was in response to COVID-19 and physical distancing guidelines ­– expanded the annual celebration of scholarship beyond the walls of the Health Sciences Learning Center and allowed members of the School of Medicine and Public Health community and anyone interested in the latest advances in pediatric research to attend the lectures and earn up to 9.5 CME credits. Nearly 100 individuals attended the presentations each day, with 125 individuals attending Thursday’s distinguished Gerard B. Odell Lecture and Pediatric Grand Rounds and close to 140 people attending the virtual poster presentations on Friday. View the Research Week 2020 posters and abstracts.
