RAPID-FIRE PRESENTATION

I have been accepted to present at the Canadian Cancer Research Conference:    

The deadline to submit your slide is Wednesday, October 25, 2017.

This year TFRI's ASM will hold concurrent rapid-fire presentations only (no poster sessions) and will follow the process used at the TFRI Ontario Node Research Day (December 2016). Each presenter will have four minutes to present using the following 'ground rules'.

ONE powerpoint-formatted slide only that summarizes the abstract is to be presented. (Use 4:3 slide formatting only). All presentations must use the TFRI Slide Format: PowerPoint Template
  • Presenters will not have a remote mouse or control over animations. So please consider this when preparing the slide.
  • There will be a timer and a moderator to ensure that everything is kept to time.
  • This presentation is really an advertisement/promotion for your CCRC poster.
  • There are many great examples of "3-Minute Thesis" presentations on You Tube; be sure to view a few to get a sense of how it is done effectively.
  • It is highly recommended to design the slide like the graphical abstracts of Cell Press; take a look at these to see how they are presented.
  • Consider this presentation like giving an "elevator pitch". See Roberta Kwok's article at http://www.nature.com/naturejobs/science/articles/10.1038/nj7435-137a
  • Essentially you want to convey WHY you did your study, HOW it was done, WHAT were the most important findings, and then conclude again with WHY this is important.
  • Your slide must be emailed to Katelyn Verstraten (kverstraten@tfri.ca) by Wednesday, October 25, 2017
