PERC 2021 Virtual Annual Conference
After careful consideration of the current situation with the second wave of the pandemic upon us, the PERC executive has come to the difficult but prudent decision to not hold an in-person PERC 2021 meeting. We know how valuable and rewarding it is to see everyone each year. The PERC meeting has facilitated the advancement of moving pediatric research forward, sharing results, advancing the next generation of researchers, and expanding our social and professional network.
While we will not have the opportunity to meet in-person, we are still committed to ensuring PERC has a virtual conference. We will prioritize that trainees and staff have the opportunity to present their work, discuss new research ideas, and share results from PERC-endorsed projects.
We will be using the same dates that were held in our calendars - Sunday, January 31st – Thursday, February 4th 2021.
You will find details below about the upcoming PERC 2021 meeting which will be held virtually including; Submission of Intention to Present Requests and Award Submissions.
INTENTION TO PRESENT
All presentation requests must be received via online submission on or before Sunday, December 6th, 2020. This includes staff, fellows and David Johnson Award for Best Fellows Research presentations. The submission deadline has now passed.
