Discover Brigham

Join us on Thursday, November 10, 2016 at Brigham and Women’s Hospital for an event that brings together our community with the broader Boston healthcare ecosystem to educate and inspire collaboration around innovative science, technology and medicine.

Sessions will highlight the work on cutting-edge topics spanning research and clinical disciplines with the opportunity to change healthcare, including genomics, global health, immunology, lung research, neurosciences, musculoskeletal, orthopedics, pregnancy and fertility, and regenerative medicine.  

Other activities include a scientific poster session, awards ceremony and a reception held in the brand new Brigham Building for the Future.

This event is free and open to the public – all are welcome to attend!


Call for Abstracts

We are currently accepting abstracts to participate in the Discover Brigham Poster Session. The poster session will take place from 12 to 1PM on November 10, 2016 and presenters must be present at their poster during this time. Learn more about eligibility requirements and submit your abstract. Abstracts will be accepted through Monday, September 26th at 11:59PM. You must be affiliated with Brigham and Women’s Hospital to apply and abstracts within all areas of research are encouraged.

This year, we will NOT be having any printed posters – all poster presenters will be using digital screens to display their posters and the total number of posters accepted will be 100 on a first come, first served basis, so we encourage you to submit your abstracts as early as possible.  We will not be able to accommodate more than 100 posters and anyone who submits a poster after we have reached 100 posters will be placed on a waiting list in the event of a spot opening up.

Call for Volunteers
