Data Blitz

  • Description
    This brief oral presentation format allows students to present research projects that are still in the early stages. You should give only brief background information, a hypothesis, very brief material and methods and some preliminary data. More than 5 or 6 slides will make the presentation most likely too long. The goal is to give a brief overview of the project and to stimulate a discussion which might be helpful in shaping the further progression of the project.
