Three things to do before Research Week 2018

Research Week 2018: April 30 to May 2

Take three actions between now and April 30: Sign up to volunteer or judge presentations, save a seat in one of the limited-space events and join a competition or challenge.

Research Week is April 30 through May 2.

1. Sign up to judge or volunteer

  • Judge! Faculty, postdocs and research staff can serve as judges of presentations given by postdocs and students. Each session you sign up to judge will include about four presentations. You can sign up for one or many.
    Find out more and sign up to judge.
  • Volunteer! Anyone at OHSU can help make Research Week happen by volunteering at the registration desk or as an oral session moderator, laptop wrangler or poster wrangler. Find out more and sign up to volunteer.

2. Save your spot for limited-space events

Research Week is free and open to all. Three Research Week events have limited space and require preregistration. If you are interested in taking part in any of the following events, be sure to sign up soon.

  • GradEd Challenge: Students work in teams to formulate and pitch solutions to the challenge of evolving and expanding community during graduate school. Requires registration in advance.
  • NOTE: HEADSHOT RESERVED SLOTS ARE FULL! You’re welcome to stop by and see if you can be worked in.
    Headshots: An OHSU photographer will be available to take your professional headshot. No cost to you, but you must preregister.
  • Improv workshop: Narrative approach to science communication. Learn how to keep people engaged when you are talking about your research, combat anxiety and feelings of failure and leave the workshop with an elevator pitch. Space is limited, so you must preregister.
  • Fast Pitch Competition: Share your work in three minutes with a precisely timed, automatically advancing, six-slide presentation. All researchers – graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, research associates, and staff scientists are encouraged to enter the competition. First place in each category will receive $500! Two prep sessions will be offered. Register!

3. Submit your most significant non-significant data

  • Submissions due by 5 p.m. Friday, April 27! The Non-significant Data Competition: You know non-significant results matter! Submit your non-significant data to show how meaningful your non-significant data is. Everyone is welcome to submit their data.
