We are excited to be able to offer a Poster Session as a part of Discover Brigham. Although it will not be held in person, this virtual session will continue to allow for attendees to explore the science and innovation of their colleagues, learn something new, and find collaborators. There are almost 100 posters available for viewing, so be sure to set aside some time to explore and appreciate all of the hard work that went into them! The research you will see at Discover Brigham and the poster session ranges from basic to translational to clinical to population science from departments and divisions from all across the hospital. You will have the ability to comment on specific presenter’s poster if you’d like to ask questions and create connections with Brigham investigators.

Each poster presenter has their own poster webpage featuring their poster, abstract and, and video narration of their poster. If you have any questions for individual Poster Presenters about the science or their specific research, please use the ‘comments’ section below the poster on each Presenter’s webpage or contact them via e-mail (if provided) if they have provided theirs for contact.
