A critical aspect of becoming a successful scientist is learning how to present and communicate your data publicly. The Student Data Club, an essential activity of the Landry Cancer Biology Consortium, is a monthly opportunity for students at all stages of graduate training to do just that – to present research among the community of peers and engage in conversations around their projects and ideas.
The Student Data Club is a student-only space that creates a safe environment allowing students to develop and improve skills necessary in their graduate training. These skills include, but are not limited to:
- Giving talks & speaking in a public setting
- Using slides/visuals to effectively communicate your message
- Answering questions from the audience
- Asking questions in a group (public) setting
- Giving and receiving feedback
Students can brainstorm their research ideas, gain practice giving presentations, and prepare for professional meetings and conferences. In addition, having students based in labs across Harvard, the Student Data Club enables networking and interaction among peers on a regular basis, an opportunity that was previously lacking.
The Student Data Club is a great opportunity for students to engage with their peers, learn about their research, and practice talks and critical questioning skills.
If you are interested in learning about the research done by graduate students in cancer biology and in sharing your own research, the Student Data Club is a great opportunity to engage with the community of like-minded peers.
Interested in presenting? Sign up here for one of our upcoming Student Data Clubs for the Fall 2022. We’ll follow up with details and you can choose the type of presentation you’d like to do, as well as the type of feedback you need from your peers (e.g., presentation style, or flow, issues with an experiment, etc.)
