2023 Department of Pediatrics’ Research Retreat

9:00 a.m.-4:45 p.m.
Live! By Loews Hotel, 799 Clark Ave., St. Louis, MO 63102

The 2023 Pediatric Research Retreat, scheduled for Friday, April 14, 2023, from 9:00 a.m. – 4:45 p.m., will again take place in the Cardinals Ballroom at the Live! By Loews Hotel next to Ballpark Village and across the street from Busch Stadium. We have made several improvements to the event, including spreading out the poster session to additional space to relieve crowding and adding additional poster viewing time before the start of the retreat. As a reminder, outpatient activities should be minimal on that day, to enable fellows and faculty who are not on inpatient services to attend the retreat.

This year’s keynote speaker is Andrew Anzalone, MD, PhD, Scientific Co-Founder and Head, Prime Editing Platform at Prime Medicine, Inc., in Cambridge, MA. Dr. Anzalone is a leader in creating human genomic editing technologies that can be applied to correct a range of single-gene disorders.

All tickets will be distributed from the registration desk at the retreat on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last (note this change from last year’s process). Stadium doors open at 5:15 pm to watch batting practice and walk around.
