Biennial Meeting

2020 SRA Biennial Meeting


Hilton San Diego Bayfront
1 Park Blvd
San Diego, CA 92101

The theme of the SRA 2020 Biennial Meeting is From Genome to Globe. At the macro level, the invited program digs into key questions of our time, including youth engagement in voting and in political movements and in how adolescents navigate in a global society. At the micro level, the program showcases new insights about human genetics and neurobiology across the life course, and it grapples with how new forms of big data in biology can illuminate the processes of development. Also featured are modern perspectives about science, including exciting youth about reasoning, researching and debating their world. These advances allow scientists and adolescents to navigate the sea of data emerging in our digital world. Sprinkled throughout the program are professional development panel discussions, workshops and posters to help you advance your career, whatever its stage.

Across all sessions, we experiment with new formats to make the sessions interactive, including duallectures and data blitzes. Diversity, interdisciplinarity, and international research are core societal priorities found throughout the program.

Program Co-Chairs Rachel Gordon, University of Illinois at Chicago, and Kathryn Paige Harden, University of
Texas at Austin, are excited to announce their confirmed Invited Program. To learn more about this year’s
