Call for Sessions and Ideas are Closed. This Submission is Only for Demos.



Have you been an attendee or a participant at ‘Discover Brigham’ (formerly BWH Research Day) in the past? Did you wish that your specific scientific domain or a research topic exciting to your community had been featured as part of the day? Is your department planning to host an educational or research event in the upcoming year? Do you have any ideas about how we could make Discover Brigham even better? If yes to any of the above, find out more below about how you can be an integral part of the Discover Brigham celebration next year.


In an effort to reach the broadest swath of the BWH community at Discover Brigham (DB) 2019, the BRI is opening a call for sessions, demos, and ideas. BWH researchers, clinicians and staff are invited to submit abstracts for sessions focused on research and/or clinical innovation topics and/or demos at this annual research showcase or, if you have an idea about how we should celebrate and elevate research at BWH, submit that as well. Come up with your best idea(s) for session, demos or even the whole event and the BRI will provide the logistical support necessary to execute your vision for Discover Brigham!
