Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania

Symposium on Advances in Genomics, Epidemiology, and Statistics (SAGES)

Meeting Venue

The 2015 Symposium on Advances in Genomics, Epidemiology and Statistics (SAGES) will take place in the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) Colket Translational Research Building (CTRB), located at 3501 Civic Center Blvd. close to the main hospitals of both CHOP and HUP. From CHOP main hospital and the Hospital of University of Pennsylvania continue on Civic Center Blvd. Past the traffic light (Osler Circle) and turn left into the Colket Building. Make a right and walk through the cafeteria entrance.

Rooms 1100AB and 1200AB are directly behind the cafeteria seating area.

The venue is a 10 minute taxi ride from Philadelphia's main train station, 30th Street Station. It can also be reached from the Philadelphia International Airport by SEPTA train to 30th Street Station, or in 20 minutes by taxi.

A limited number of parking spaces will be available on a first come, first serve basis in the parking lot indicated in the map (CHOP Wood Building) for $16.00. Please inform CHOP security when entering the parking lot that you are going to SAGES and they will direct you to the available spaces.

Please note that this is the parking lot used by CHOP patients and it tends to fill up very quickly. Please plan accordingly if you are driving to SAGES and be prepared to arrive early to look for alternative parking in the area. We recommend using public transportation if possible.

General driving directions to the Children's Hospital are here. A convenient public transportation route can be determined through SEPTA's website.
