Faculty Trainee and Development

Every June, The Saban Research Institute holds a poster session to showcase the broad range of research being done at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. The day provides a networking opportunity for basic, clinical and community health researchers to come together and celebrate their accomplishments. 

Trainees perform much of the hands-on work involved in research and the poster session provides them a forum to share their progress. With so much research occurring at The Saban Research Institute, this annual event provides a way for researchers at all levels to keep up with what the other research labs are doing.

It also offers a forum for participants to share their recent project findings and network for future research endeavors.
