 Symposium Program Objectives

This event has been planned for faculty, residents, students and others performing research in pediatrics at the University of Michigan. Our goal is to provide an opportunity for participants to (1) be informed of state-of-the-art research in Pediatrics by inter/nationally recognized keynote lecturers; (2) present and discuss their current research in an educational forum; (3) compete for awards promoting young investigators in Pediatric research; (4) be informed of peers’ research across all Pediatric specialties; and (5) have the opportunity to interact and form collaborations across the spectrum of pediatric and child health research.
