About Sophia Research Day

The Sophia Research Days are a yearly symposium devoted to the research done in the Sophia Children's Hospitals. The Sophia Research Days offer an unique opportunity for young researchers affiliated with this theme to share their research results, broaden their networks, and learn from experienced researchers within as well as outside their field of expertise.

Research in Erasmus Medical Center Sophia Children’s Hospital

The departments of Paediatrics, Paediatric Surgery, Clinical Genetics, and Child and Adolescent Psychiatry/Psychology, Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Gynaecological Oncology, Urology, Department of Pediatric Intensive Care and Neonatology work closely together to research current topics within the Sophia Children's Hospital. As one of the priorities of the Sophia is to improve health care through research, all affiliated departments are involved in extensive research in their own fields. Therefore, the Sophia Research Days, in which all these departments participate, is a great opportunity to share the most recent, important and innovative research results!
