Postdoc and Grad Student Research Symposium

Oter ResearchThe Office for Teaching, Education and Research (OTER) is proud to present the First Annual Postdoc and Grad Student Fall Research Symposium – an opportunity for postdoctoral fellows and graduate students at Seattle Children’s Research Institute to present their research to the larger research institute community.

Dr. Rick Horwitz, Executive Director of the Allen Institute, will be joining us at 1:30pm for a keynote address. Dr. Horwitz has spent the past 15 years in the Department of Cell Biology, as Harrison Distinguished Professor and University Professor, at the University of Virginia, School of Medicine, where his lab investigated the mechanisms of cell migration and dendritic spine morphogenesis. He also served for 10 years as the Director of the Cell Migration Consortium: an NIH-funded multi-institutional, multi-disciplinary collaboration for studying cell migration in its many biological and pathological contexts.

With over 22 abstracts to be presented, the Postdoc and Graduate Student Symposium promises to inspire. Prizes will be awarded to the top presentations.

All are welcome to attend. No registration necessary. Lunch and an afternoon reception will be served.
