Register for the 4th Annual Research Symposium at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center

We would like to invite you to present your ongoing, basic and translational biomedical research at the 4th Annual Research Symposium at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.    Our annual symposium is planned and conducted entirely by the graduate student body here at Cedars-Sinai. It is our belief that this symposium, by students and for students, provides a unique opportunity to foster inter-institutional relations all across Southern California and throughout the state.

This year we are proud to present our keynote speaker, Jeffrey D. Rothstein MD, PhD. Dr. Rothstein is the John Griffin Director of the Brain Science Institute and professor of Neurology and Neuroscience at Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD, USA. He is the founder and director of the Robert Packard Center for ALS Research at Johns Hopkins, the largest collaborative academic organization dedicated towards understanding ALS and developing novel therapeutics.  Dr. Rothstein has made significant contributions to the scientific community, with over 250 peer reviewed publications and over a dozen patents on candidate drugs and biomarkers for ALS and Neurodegenerative Diseases. Dr. Rothstein will embody the spirit of this symposium through his work at the intersection of medical practice and medical research.

We invite all who are participating to share their work and submit an abstract of no more than 500 words as part of their registration.  This symposium caters towards both basic and translational biomedical research. Masters and PhD students are encouraged to present a poster of their research, and outstanding abstracts will be chosen for oral presentations.  Additionally, cash awards will be given out for best posters and presentations.  To register for the symposium and to submit an abstract, please go to and click REGISTER NOW on the home page.  Please see the flyer attached for additional information and where to submit questions or comments.

Thank you for your time and we hope to see you and your research this year.
