What happens at the Student Seminar?

The Student Seminar is a presentation of the work a student has done in their rotations or thesis research. A 10- to 15-minute talk is given to the IPN after every rotation and a 45-minute seminar is given once a year thereafter on the student’s thesis research. This series of talks provides students the opportunity to learn the elements of preparing and presenting a seminar.

Post-Rotation Student Seminars

Following each of the rotations, students present a short (10- to 15-minute) talk that summarizes the goal(s) of the research rotation and presents any data acquired. While these talks should be thoughtfully prepared, they are not meant to be the equivalent of regular seminars given by more advanced students.

Most, if not all, of the talk, can be focused around the goals of the rotation, the significance, rationale for these goals, and the experimental approaches used to begin to achieve these goals. There is no expectation that substantial new data will be generated during the rotation. If new data have been generated, the presentation of these data will be most welcome (but not required!). A rough guide for a 10- to 15-minute talk might be to present 3-9 slides (slides template).

Thesis Student Seminars

In their annual Student Seminar, students are expected to present their thesis research to the program. This talk should be roughly 45 minutes and give an outline of their project, including background, rationale, methods, data collected so far, conclusions, and future directions. We also ask students to highlight scientific rigor in all presentations.  This seminar series gives students the opportunity to learn the elements of preparing and presenting a seminar and the program the opportunity to keep up to date on research being performed in the IPN.

Recommended organization of talks.
