The LKSKI (dry bench) seminars take place on Wednesdays from 12 – 1 pm. The KRC-RTC (wet bench) seminars will be part of the unified KRC seminar series, which consists of weekly seminars on Fridays at 1 – 2pm, featuring KRC and iBEST PIs and trainees (1/month), and visiting scientists. All trainees are encouraged to attend these seminars that provide an excellent learning and networking opportunity. Trainees can showcase their research and get feedback from experienced scientists, research staff and peers.
We are currently inviting trainees to present at the 2019/20 seminar series. If you are interested, please send us an email indicating your name, supervisor, a topic (a full title can be provided later) and any preferred dates. We are asking presenters to prepare a 20 min presentation aimed at a wider audience (please don’t make it so specialized that those outside your discipline cannot follow). We will be happy to share more detailed instructions with presenters. Two trainee presentations are given per seminar and a light lunch is provided.
Why present at RTC seminars and why attend these presentations?
Attending and presenting at research seminars is an important part of your training, developing useful skills that are portable, regardless of career path. The seminars also increase the visibility of your work to the broader St. Michael’s community, enhancing your networking with other researchers. Who knows – your next employer, supervisor, or co-investigator could be in the audience! AND you can also list your presentation on your CV.
The seminars are NOT intended to put you under extra pressure and we do not require fully finished, polished or published works. We do ask that presenters have some data to present (for graduate students, second year or later is the ideal time to do this presentation). Presentations are NOT graded or ranked. Rather, the seminars are a forum where graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and PIs can help and teach each other, and discuss cutting-edge scientific research.
For advice on preparing presentations, check out our presentation resources page.
We will be sending out reminders to all trainees and upcoming seminars will be advertised through our website, the RTC Express, and on the screens throughout the KRC and LKSKI.
