Student Talks

This year, full-length student talks will be 10 mins with 5 mins for Q&A. In lieu of a poster session as we have had in the past, we will have the opportunity for earlier-stage PhD students to give 3-minute lightning talks to discuss their research plans. I strongly encourage all CBI trainees and SIGF fellows in their 2nd year or later to submit a talk for consideration. You can indicate your interest on the RSVP form.
