2nd Annual Stanford Maternal and Child Health Research Institute Symposium

Friday, November 15, 2019 | Li Ka Shing Center, Berg Hall

Poster Session

NOW ACCEPTING ABSTRACTS!

DEADLINE: TUESDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2019 - 5:00PM

We invite you to present at our annual 2019 MCHRI Symposium! We are now accepting all abstracts focused in maternal and child health research which will be reviewed and selected to present during our poster sessions.  All MCHRI-funded faculty and trainees (past and current) are highly encouraged to submit an abstract describing their projects and associated research. 

There will be various session opportunities to present your poster at the symposium. If selected, presenters are expected to be available during this time and participate in the poster session. Presenters are also encouraged to attend the all-day symposium.

Five abstracts will be selected for oral presentation at the symposium. Notifications of selected abstracts will be sent out by October.

Poster Details

The maximum poster size is 36 inches x 48 inches (3’ x 4’) in landscape format. Please note you may be presenting on one half of an 8-foot-wide board with another presenter.

Please be advised that not all abstracts may be accepted due to space constraints, a limited number of abstracts are allowed from each lab, and content should not be reused from a prior Stanford symposium (external society meetings or conferences would be acceptable). 

Poster Setup

Poster participants may set up their posters on the morning of the symposium.

Maps of the poster tack boards will be provided onsite. Please find the tack board with your assigned number. Push-pins and tape will be provided for you to hang your poster.

Poster Participants

We ask that you stand near your poster during the session to answer questions from attendees. Please plan to leave your poster up until the end of the symposium. 

Faculty members, staff, community members, and other guests will be walking around the room asking questions and eager to learn about your project. Come prepared to answer questions and explain your work.

Post-Event Poster Clean up

After the symposium, please take your posters with you. Any unclaimed posters will be disposed. Unfortunately, we do not have space to hold any leftover posters for pick up.

Contact

Should you have any questions, please contact Grant Wells.
