* PRE-RECORDED Regional Lab Showcase videos, as well as Regional Lab Data to be included on our new Regional Lab Showcase webpage.
Check out the schedule HERE, including details on trainee oral presentations and the break-out sessions.
Registration is FREE! Registration is required for all participants in order to obtain the Zoom link for live events, to obtain the link to view the pre-recorded Trainee Flash Talks and Regional Lab Showcase videos, and for trainee participants to designate their preferred live break-out sessions.
Abstracts (Trainees only)
Abstract Submission is Now Closed.
Trainee Oral Presentations: 8-10 minutes in length, with 2 minutes for Q&A; will be presented LIVE via Zoom with trainees as moderators. The most outstanding abstracts submitted were chosen for Trainee Oral Presentations. See our 2020 Speakers page for more information.
Trainee Flash Talks: 3-5 minutes in length with no limit to the number of slides you can include as long as your recorded video stays within the 3-5 minute time range. A Flash Talk is a "mini-talk", with a concise, clear explanation of a research project. The Flash Talks are replacing the Posters/Poster Session in this year's Virtual environment. Awards will be given to the most outstanding Flash Talks and they will be available for viewing via CourseSites by Blackboard, along with the abstract and a discussion board for each Flash Talk.
The Flash Talks will be available for viewing from October 5 - October 12, 2020 at 8:00 a.m.
Regional Lab Showcase Data and Video
New in 2020, the Regional Lab Showcase idea was suggested by members of our Regional Trainee Sub-Committee as a way to learn more about the reproductive and perinatal research labs in the Midwest region who participate in the Greenwald Symposium. Labs were encouraged to submit a single video and submit the Regional Lab Showcase Data. Additional videos are only be available to those who register for our Greenwald Symposium.
