Event Description

2023 Graduate Student Research Day (GSRD) Elevator Speech Workshops led by GSBS alumna, Tamara Laskowski, PhD, Senior Director, Head of Clinical Development, Personalized Medicine at Lonza!

“An elevator speech is an invaluable tool that enables communication of science and medicine to scientific and non-scientific audiences in a way that sparks excitement and enthusiasm in the listener. By learning the elements of an elevator speech, you will be able to effectively communicate the significance of your research in the short amount of time you may have to grab someone's attention. Whether it is presenting a poster, speaking to the local community, or taking a quick elevator ride with a potential sponsor, knowing how to effectively and enthusiastically share your science makes all the difference! Take advantage of this opportunity and join us as we learn how to build a successful and memorable elevator speech."  -- Dr. Tamara J. Laskowski

These workshops are open to any GSBS student interested in improving their communication skills. Workshops are highly recommended for those considering competing at the GSRD Elevator Speech competitions.
