Meeting Venue - same location as 2019

The 2022 Symposium on Advances in Genomics, Epidemiology and Statistics (SAGES) will take place in the Arthur H. Rubenstein Auditorium in the Perelman School of Medicine (PSOM), Smilow Center for Translational Research (SCTR), located at 3400 Civic Center Blvd. close to the main hospitals of both CHOP and HUP. From CHOP main hospital and HUP, SCTR is across Civic Center Blvd. at the corner of East Service Drive.  Entrance to SCTR is half a block down from Starbucks at the corner.

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.  If you plan to park in the garage please let us know so we may give CHOP security an estimate on how many vehicles to expect.  Upon arrival, please inform CHOP security (an email has been sent to remind them again) when entering the parking lot that you are going to SAGES and they will direct you to the available spaces.  You will pay for your parking at the kiosk before exiting the garage.

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.

Walking map to SCTR from Inn at Penn Hotel:  Google Maps.  A convenient public transportation route can be determined through SEPTA's website.  General driving directions are here.
