Registration for St. Jude’s third annual Pediatric Biomedical Imaging Initiative Scientific Symposium – Imaging Structure and Functions of Hippocampus – scheduled for Friday, February 25, 2022, is now open.
More information about PBII, the Scientific Symposium, and the 2022 Hippocampus symposium, along with a link to their registration site, can be found on St. Jude’s web pages – www.stjude.org/pbii.
If you would like to visit their registration site directly, you can do so here – www.stjude.org/pbii-research.
As of now, the symposium will be held virtually for all attendees. Should things change and St. Jude is able to host a small number of guests on site, they will let you know and can adjust your registration.
Below they’ve outlined the speakers and presentation titles. In the coming weeks, St. Jude will finalize the agenda and update on their registration site.
