PhD Doctor of Philosophy candidate
Ding dong! You are going door-to-door to talk to your neighbors about new advancements in the field of glial biology. But there's a catch! Each neighbor has their own interests, level of understanding, and point-of-view. Your job is to effectively convey the knowledge you've learned to several different audiences: an elementary school student who loves science, a politician who may want to fund this work, a skeptic who's not too sure if these data are real, and a retired teacher familiar with the field. Students will write a review article analyzing the recent advances in a specific subject or field within neuroscience. Then, the student will prepare several short presentations to effectively communicate their findings to different types of audiences.
