Students and postdocs: Send in your ugliest data!

Do you have an unfortunate set of data? A photo of a lab “fail”? Or a particularly ugly graph? Turn that ugly data into a brand new iPod Nano!

During Student Day at OHSU Research Week, Friday, May 24, students will vote for the ugliest piece of data. We all have some form ugly data in our notebooks, and it’s different in every field. So submit your data, and let’s have a laugh at our own mistakes!

Here’s an example from Kelly Chacón, a graduate student in Environmental Health.

To submit, put your data onto a single PowerPoint slide. Add a caption explaining what’s so ugly about your data, and send to School of Medicine Graduate Student Organization by Friday, May 17.

We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
