Child Health Research Day

The Jack and Lucy Clark Department of Pediatrics, the Mindich Child Health and Development Institute, and the Department of Environmental Medicine and Public Health host the annual Child Health Research Day. Held in the spring, this event highlights the outstanding children’s health research activities of the departments’ students, housestaff, clinical and research post-doctoral fellows, research staff, social workers, nurses and junior faculty across the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and Mount Sinai Health System.

The 25th Annual Child Health Research Day was held on Thursday, April 13 from 8:00am - 1:00pm:

The morning began in Hatch Auditorium with the Dr. Howard Rappaport Memorial Grand Rounds Lecture, where Kathryn M. Edwards, MD, Sarah H. Sell and Cornelius Vanderbilt Chair in Pediatrics and Director of the Vanderbilt Vaccine Research Program, delivered her keynote speech on “Unraveling the Mystery of Periodic Fever in Children.”

The breadth of research, broadly related to the health and welfare of infants, children and adolescents, presented in the plenary and poster sessions, exemplifies the commitment to scientific discovery and scholarship central to our academic mission. The goal is to advance collaborations between basic, clinical, and social scientists and expand scientific knowledge in the fields of neonatal, infant, child and adolescent health. The event provides a unique opportunity for junior investigators to share the results of their research with colleagues, and thereby discover new applications for their work or identify potential future areas for collaboration.

Of the research projects that were submitted for presentation, the top six projects were selected for long oral presentations and the top twelve projects were selected for short presentations during a morning plenary session, and then others were presented by the authors in poster format.
