8th Annual Pediatric Research Symposium
January 12-13, 2017
Rady Children's Hospital San Diego
The 8th Annual Pediatric Research Symposium was a resounding success, with approximately 220 people in attendance for this year’s two-day event. This exciting and collaborative symposium brought together pediatric basic and clinical science researchers for a series of talks, poster presentations, and networking opportunities, along with leaders from various fields from UCSD (Drs. Vineet Bafna and Larry Goldstein, both PhDs), and from the Salk Institute (Ron Evans, PhD), as well as from The University of Arizona (Fernando Martinez, MD). This year’s Symposium was held in Rady Children’s Hospital’s beautiful new Education and Office Building conference facilities, with this year’s theme related to the research performed by our junior faculty or "The Next Generation Faculty." Additionally, our Poster Session was very well-attended, with over 200 physicians and researchers and over 152 abstracts submitted! To see photos from this year’s event, click
