Children's Health and Education Research Seminars

We are delighted to invite speakers for the CHERS 2014-2015 session beginning October 9th, 2014. The Department of Pediatrics is continuing this important weekly research presentation and training initiative to enhance the PhD Postdoctoral Fellows and MD Fellows research and training experience.

These seminars will provide PhD Postdoctoral/MD Fellows the opportunity to present their research findings as well as include Career Development instructions and Pediatrics Faculty Research Seminars.

CHERS aims to provide enriching interactions which will allow PhD Postdoctoral/MD Fellows to learn more about current basic and translational research in the Department, get feedback on their research, open opportunities for potential collaborations and gain career development training.

Medical fellows and residents are welcome to present at CHERS.

Faculty from the department will also present their work at CHERS Pediatric Faculty Research Seminar Series for the benefit of the PhD Postdoctoral/MD Fellows.

Presentations will be about 30-45 minutes followed by about 15 min Q&A.
