TALK 1: RESEARCH SKILLS 101
Many embark on a PhD or Masters program to purse a passion for knowledge, a desire to better human health, and/or the intention to become one of the intellectually elite. The keys to succeeding, rather than just surviving, are in attainment of key skills, tools, and resources. This seminar will address what is required to succeed during your PhD candidature. Topics include time management, data collection, record keeping, teamwork, written and oral communication, and profile building, and tips on finding the right resources.
TALK 2: WET LAB SKILLS 101
Reproducibility is central to achieving high quality, impactful outcomes in the laboratory. Together we will review the most important tools that underpin every lab procedure, including pipet and pH meter calibration, buffer preparation, and sample labelling.
