The Southeastern Pediatric Research Conference is the primary annual educational and networking event for the Pediatric Research Alliance. This conference brings together both basic and clinical science researchers with pediatricians and healthcare providers to promote the integration of cutting-edge research into clinical practice. In 2017, we had a record attendance of more than 465 people representing 18 institutions across the southeast, including Vanderbilt, Duke, and the University of Alabama Birmingham. The theme of the 2018 conference is precision medicine. Please join us for an exciting day of presentations, poster sessions, networking and knowledge-sharing.
