Enrollment: Advance sign-up for personalized abstract consultation

Are you preparing an abstract for a paper or poster? How do you sum up your research clearly in less than 200 words? Can you grab the readers' attention without sounding too grandiose? Have you fretted over how much detail to include?

Join us in 76-156 from noon to 2pm on Friday, January 16th. Christina Lilliehook (Senior Editor, Cell Stem Cell) and Brian Plosky (Deputy Editor, Molecular Cell) will offer advice on how to write an effective abstract. The editors will give general tips and critique a few real examples, then we'll break into groups for personalized abstract writing consultations (with snacks!).

The general presentation is open to everyone at MIT; Koch Institute members and affiliates will be given priority for consultations. Consultations will be on a first-come-first-served basis, so sign up now and submit your abstract by January 9th to secure an appointment. Limit ~14, walk-ins may be accepted based on availability. Sign up via EventBrite.
