Celebrating 12 years of scholarly achievements of our faculty, staff and trainees, and the opening of the Children's National Research & Innovation Campus.

Research, Education and Innovation Week

Each year, Children’s National Research Institute (CNRI) hosts Research, Education and Innovation (REI) Week to showcase the wide array of research and education programs occurring throughout the institution. This week-long celebration includes over 300 poster presentations, guest lectures, educational workshops and panel discussions.

REI Week began in 2000 as a Research Day in order to showcase the breadth of translational, clinical, and community research and educational projects performed in our hospital. The inaugural Research Day hosted approximately 100 research projects.

Beginning in 2011, Research Day evolved into the current REI Week expanded format to include guest lectures, educational workshops, panel discussions, and call attention to services and support teams available to researchers here at Children’s National. In its inaugural year, REI Week hosted 231 posters (an increase from 191 the prior year). Each year we celebrate the growth of the event.
