Members of the Pediatric Community,

We are pleased to announce the 30th Annual Pediatric Research Symposium will be held in the Towsley Center on Thursday, May 28, 2020.* The Symposium will feature poster viewing, awards, and platform presentations of research in all areas: clinical investigation, basic sciences, health services research, quality improvement, and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. We are honored to have Dr. Maria Britto, Cincinnati Children's Hospital, UC Department of Pediatrics, as our featured guest speaker for the Valerie P. Opipari Lectureship.

We are particularly interested in having residents, trainees, and junior faculty members present their work at this event.  It is the Department’s expectation that all graduating residents and fellows will provide an abstract of their work. Faculty funded by department Intramural Research Awards are reminded to present their research upon completion of projects.

Please submit your best abstracts by March 2, 2020. Guidelines for abstracts and instructions for submission are provided on the Department of Pediatrics website at

We look forward to seeing you at the Pediatric Research Symposium in May.
