Attention Undergraduate and Graduate Students and Postdoctoral Trainees!
In addition to the traditional didactic lecture format for scientific talks, there will also be a special session at this year’s Spring NCASM meeting for students to give short TED-like talks. Approximately 18 students will be selected for the opportunity to give a short (approx 10 minute) TED-like talk. Guidance on how to present a TED-like talk as well as special recognition will be given to all presenters and their advisors/mentors.
