Welcome to the submission page for the Science Slam event at the 2024 MRC Symposium! We’re thrilled to introduce this exciting addition to our symposium lineup as a part of the award reception to end our day in a fun way! Enjoy this unique opportunity to showcase your research in a dynamic and engaging format.

What exactly is a Science Slam, you might wonder? It’s a chance for researchers to step out of the confines of traditional presentations and into the spotlight, captivating audiences with their work in a fast-paced and entertaining manner.

Think of it as a fusion of science and performance art, where presenters have just a few minutes to wow the audience with their discoveries, experiments, and insights. Whether you’re a seasoned scientist or a curious observer, the Science Slam promises to deliver an unforgettable experience that will leave you inspired and enlightened.

We’re seeking submissions from students, trainees and scientists across all disciplines who are eager to share their passion for discovery in a fun and engaging way. Whether you have a groundbreaking research finding, a fascinating experiment, or a compelling story to tell, we want to hear from you!

So if you’re ready to take your research to the stage and captivate an audience with your scientific prowess, submit your teaser video for the Science Slam today and make a chance to win a Travel Award!
