We are going virtual!

Ini 2021, we will be continuing the celebration for the belated Children’s National Hospital 150th birthday and the opening of new Research and Innovation campus by hosting a virtual lecture series. Updates will be posted as the program is finalized.  

Research, Education and Innovation Week 2021 Virtual Keynote Lecture Series

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. We are happy to announce this week-long celebration will continue in 2021 as a virtual lecture series.

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 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.
