Monash ‘Neuroscience in a Flash’ Competition 2020

What is the Monash ‘Neuroscience in a Flash’ Competition?

The ‘Neuroscience in a Flash’ Competition is a challenge for you, our graduate research students, to creatively present your research thesis to a general audience, in three minutes, using only one slide!

This is a great opportunity for you to take up as it will provide a platform to raise your research profile, learn valuable skills whilst also having some fun.

As a result of the current COVID-19 restrictions, we’ll be hosting the competition virtually using Zoom on:

  • Session 1 (Mon 30 Nov, 12:30 - 2:00pm) - For Honours and PhD or Masters who are pre-confirmation
  • Session 2 (Mon 14 Dec, 12:30 - 2:00pm) - For PhD or Masters post-confirmation

Join the fun

Share your feedback and tell us who you think should win the People’s Choice Award for the best presentation using #MonashNeuroscience on social media.
