RESEARCH ROUNDTABLES

We will be hosting a number of ‘research roundtables’ during Discover Brigham spanning the research areas that align with some of the research centers at the Brigham Research Institute. Each roundtable will provide you with a quick look at what’s happening at the Brigham and an opportunity to participate in a lively discussion with experts around each research area.

PANELS

Our panels will provide Discover Brigham attendees with a range of voices and expertise, and a more in-depth look at some of the research taking place at the hospital in the form of a conversation pairing our researchers with innovators, journalists, or collaborators.

POSTER SESSIONS

The Discover Brigham Poster Session will highlight the research of our young investigators, with their work appearing across the hospital and presenters stationed at their posters to discuss their research with attendees between 2:30 – 3:30PM during the event.

The research presented in the posters spans across disciplines and departments and reflects the spirit of innovation and collaboration at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. We encourage you to visit as many posters as you can to take the opportunity to hear about the outstanding work being done by the Brigham research community.

DISCOVERIES & DEMOS

Kick off Discover Brigham with our Discoveries & Demos across the hospital. Dive into Virtual Reality, connect with nurses about their innovative work, relax with workplace yoga and more!

COLLABORATORIES

Following each session (with the exception of Opioid and Research Open Mic), guests are invited to attend the post-session “Collaboratory.” This will be a networking opportunity for discussants to meet, interact, ask further questions and create ongoing conversations with attendees around the research center and the topic that was introduced.
