Discover Brigham is an annual event that provides the community with a firsthand look at the incredible action going on behind-the-scenes at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. This unique event showcases current projects and accomplishments of investigators who are paving the way for further discovery and innovation. This year, we are reimagining Discover Brigham in light of COVID-19 and will be hosting it virtually. We are truly excited for this extraordinary opportunity to reach an even broader population of global citizens, clinicians, budding scientists and family members.

Tune in for six must-see sessions presented by Brigham researchers with topics ranging from artificial intelligence at the bedside and the COVID-19 research being conducted in our hospital to a competition among postdocs who will be pitching their research to the public in hopes of winning the $1,000 prize. The conference will also feature virtually interactive demos and an extensive poster session with over 100 posters.
