About this Event

Stanford Maternal & Child Health Research Institute Symposium

During these challenging times, we might not be able to come together in person, but we can stay connected. This year, we’ll be re-creating our annual research experience online. This annual research symposium will bring together faculty, trainees, students, and postdocs from Stanford and beyond to explore the latest developments and innovations in maternal and child health research. This event is free and open to all.

Join us at this virtual event on Nov. 6!

Attendees will learn about the research funded by the Institute across campus, the programs and resources available to support clinical and translational research in maternal and child health, and the researchers and scientists who are solving the greatest health challenges facing pregnant women and children. The symposium will include online poster sessions throughout the day where attendees will have opportunities to interact with presenters to learn about scientific ideas and innovations in maternal and child health research.
