11th Annual Pediatrics Research Retreat
LKSC Conference Center, Berg Hall
The Stanford Department of Pediatrics invites submissions from trainees for oral abstracts and posters for the 11th Annual Pediatrics Research Retreat on Thursday, April 23, 2020. This is an opportunity for instructors, fellows, residents, postdocs, students, and faculty of all disciplines to share the latest research developments in their field.
Submission Deadline January 15, 2020
Call for Abstracts
All abstract submissions should include a trainee as the primary author. The trainee categories in Pediatrics include: Instructors, Fellows, Residents, Postdocs, and Students.
Oral abstract and poster submissions are due by 5pm on January 15, 2020.
We look forward to seeing you on Thursday, April 23, 2020.
If you have any questions about the submission process, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We recommend that you prepare your abstract in a word processing application and then paste each component into the corresponding online section. Your abstract should not exceed 500 words. An abstract submission is considered a commitment to attend the retreat and present, if accepted.
Abstract decisions will be sent to the primary author in February 2020. All abstracts will undergo a review process by the Research Retreat Executive Committee reviewers. All abstracts should include a trainee as the primary author. The trainee categories in Pediatrics include: Instructors, Fellows, Residents, Postdocs, and Students.
Five trainees will be selected to present an oral presentation as part of the main agenda. Oral presentations include a short 10 minute overview of the research and 5 minutes for Q&A.Oral abstract and poster submissions are due by 5pm on January 15, 2020.

Michelle Monje, MD, PhD
Michelle Monje, MD, PhD, is an Associate Professor of Neurology and, by courtesy, of Neurosurgery, Psychiatry, Pathology, and Pediatrics. Dr. Monje received her MD and PhD in Neuroscience from Stanford University. As a PhD student under the mentorship of Dr. Theo Palmer, Dr. Monje studied microenvironmental determinants of neural stem cell fate choice. Dr. Monje completed her residency training in neurology at the Massachusetts General Hospital/Brigham and Women's Hospital/Harvard Medical School Partners program, and then returned to Stanford for a clinical fellowship in pediatric neuro-oncology and a postdoctoral fellowship with Dr. Philip Beachy. During her postdoctoral work, Dr. Monje focused on the neurodevelopmental origins of a devastating pediatric brain tumor called diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG).
Dr. Monje’s research program studies the molecular and cellular mechanisms of postnatal neurodevelopment and pediatric gliomagenesis. This includes microenvironmental influences on neural precursor cell fate choice in normal neurodevelopment and in disease states. Areas of emphasis include neuron-glial interactions, developmental and adaptive myelination, and microenvironmental contributions to glioma pathogenesis. As a practicing neurologist and neuro-oncologist, Dr. Monje is particularly interested in the identifying novel therapeutic strategies for pediatric gliomas, the neural regulation of cancer progression and the neurological consequences of cancer treatment.

EARLY POSTER DROP OFF
For your convenience, we will allow early poster drop off no later than Wednesday, April 22 before 3:00pm. Include your poster and name clearly marked on the outside of your poster. Drop off your poster at the Department of Pediatrics Chair’s Suite at room H310, East Pavilion, 3rd Floor, Stanford Hospital. If you miss the early drop off time, you will have access to the poster area on Thursday, April 23 between 7:30am and 9:45am.
If you have questions, please feel free to send an email to email@example.com.
Posters will be on display at the LKSC Berg Hall on Thursday, April 23, 2020 between 10:00am and 3pm. The formal Poster Session where presenters must stand with their poster will be held from 10:00am-11:00am and 12:20pm-1:00pm.
On April 23, you will have access to the poster area in Berg Hall, Room A and in the Lobby, between 7:30am and 9:45am to display your poster. Posters must be in place by 9:45am on April 23.
POSTER WINNERS & RECOGNITION
Poster finalists will be judged during the poster sessions. Winners will be determined by the end of lunch and notified. We will request winners to be available at 2:45pm for the Abstract & Poster winner acknowledgements.
Posters will be limited to 44 inches high x 44 inches wide.
- Due to limited space, two poster presentations will be mounted to each side of the poster boards.
- Please follow size limits so you allow a space for a poster number in the upper corner of the board and avoid encroaching on your neighbor’s poster display.
- Each poster has been assigned a number for you to know where to place your poster
You are expected to stand with your poster during the Poster Sessions so that attendees may confer with you. Faculty, staff, community members, and other guests will be walking around the room asking questions and are eager to learn about your project. Come prepared to answer questions and explain your work.
You are responsible for removing your poster at the end of the event at 3:30pm.
