Sharing Your Results

Communicating and sharing research is important as a scientist.

Submitting an abstract to a journal, giving your first talk at a public conference, or standing in front of a poster explaining your research is a big deal for anyone and can be defining moments in your career. That’s why it’s important to learn and practice techniques and tools to better communicate your research with people of all ages and backgrounds.
