From design to delivery: the art of scientific communication for microbiologists


Effective scientific communication is a critical cornerstone of microbiology research. However, student and postdoctoral trainees have relatively few training opportunities available that specifically address best practices for delivering oral presentations, designing posters, and preparing figures and tables for publications. This year's professional skills workshop focuses on these transferable skills, with presentations and discussions from Drs. Josh Neufeld (University of Waterloo; “How to give a talk”), Haley Sapers (Caltech; “How to design a poster”), and Denice Bay (University of Manitoba; “How to design figures and tables for publication"). We plan to discuss practical and philosophical approaches to these important scientific communication skills, bridging art and science in the process.
