About Pediatrics Science Day
The primary purpose of Pediatrics Science Day is to give students, post-docs, residents, fellows, or junior faculty, the opportunity to present their research to their colleagues, and to obtain scientific feedback in a friendly environment. We strongly encourage the submission of abstracts that have been recently presented at or have been submitted to national research meetings. However, most importantly, we would like to encourage the participation of all trainees in this unique opportunity!
In addition to abstract submissions, residents and fellows may also submit interesting clinical cases which include a briefcase presentation, a summary of unusual disease presentation or perplexing diagnosis, and a literature review of novel diagnostic methods and treatments.
In 1982, Dr. Sam Gross established Pediatrics Science Day to give UF researchers of all academic levels the opportunity to present and discuss their research. The primary purpose of this event is to create an environment where researchers can learn of advancements, discuss the future of research, and ultimately form partnerships that will transform the field of Pediatrics. Since its inception forty years ago, this event has grown from a few speakers to over fifty oral and poster presentations that highlight the cutting-edge research conducted at the University of Florida each year.
In the spirit of this tradition, it is now time to call on our researchers for the abstracts of potential presentations for our Annual Pediatrics Science Day. All pre-doctoral students, doctoral students, medical students, residents, fellows, and junior faculty are invited to submit an abstract of their current research for consideration as either an oral or poster presentation.
