Presenting Your Research Bootcamp In-Person

Presenting has become one of the most important methods of communicating research for the scientific community. Join Library staff and various presentation experts across UCSF as we share useful methods of communicating your work to the public. 

This bootcamp is designed to walk early career researchers through the process of effectively presenting your research through visual and verbal communication. 

Specifically, we will cover tips on:

  • Fundamental techniques for presenting with confidence
  • Crafting an elevator pitch
  • Designing and presenting posters
  • Effective conference presentations and lightning talks

Guest Speakers

Christy Sheehy, PhD, is a UCSF Postdoctoral Research Scholar studying the use of eye motion as an early stage screening tool for patients with Multiple Sclerosis and other neurological conditions. Sheehy is also a 2017 Postdoc Slam Competition finalist and People's Choice winner. 






Dr. William Brown is an Assistant Professor at the UCSF School of Medicine in the Division of Prevention Science. He implements innovative biomedical informatics methods, creates research tools, and follows the principals of community-based participatory research to address health disparities among underserved communities, and to create a Learning Health System that is responsive to vulnerable populations, particularly those at risk for acquiring HIV/AIDS.





Alex Ehrenberg graduated from UC Berkeley in 2017 with a B.A. in integrative biology (evolution, ecology, and organismal biology division) and molecular and cellular biology (developmental genetics division). He started at UCSF in Spring 2012 working under Dr. Pierre-Antoine Gourraud in the Multiple Sclerosis Genetics Research Lab. There, he developed skills in computational biology, informatics, and statistics. In Fall 2013, he moved to the Grinberg lab at the Memory and Aging Center where he now studies the early pathology of Alzheimer's disease using techniques within unbiased stereology, neuropathology, computer modeling, immunohistochemistry, and statistics. In these studies, he has focused heavily on the accumulation of pathologic tau in early Alzheimer's disease stages. He also works to develop technologies such as wide-field microscopy and polarized light imaging.
