Important Information for Speed Presentations

This virtual format will challenge our presenters to make a short video presentation.

Each presenter will have to create PowerPoint slides which include a title slide (Presenter Name, Department, Mentor), overview, results, conclusions and acknowledgements. This should take no more than 7 slides and presenters are expected to make a 2-3 minute *Speed* video presentation using these slides. Students are asked to record their presentations alone via Zoom and upload them (MP4 format) into a OneDrive Folder (link coming soon) where they will be combined according to the group each student was assigned. Students- please also submit your title slide (as a separate JPEG image) within your designated OneDrive Folder.

This platform, in addition to Zoom, is being utilized for Research Day 2022. Just as in the in-person Research Day, you will be assigned a specific time slot that you will be required to be online to showcase your speed presentation for a small group of your peers and faculty based on keywords provided in the abstract submission form. Videos will be played one after another with some time at the end for moderated questions within the Zoom platform. During this timeslot, our judges will visit your presentations virtually. To view your designated group and timeslot- please scroll to the bottom of this page.

Speed Presenter Instructions

After the abstract deadline, we will send out instructions for uploading your 2-3 minute presentation to Canvas. All speed presentation materials (video recording of presentation & JPEG title slide) must be uploaded by January 27, 2022 by 11:59pm. Presentations that go over 3 minute cut off will NOT be accepted.

Power Point Presentation Template:

We encourage you to use this template for your presentation. Remember to acknowledge any Shared Resources utilized during this research. When recording your speed presentation on Zoom, be sure to “share screen” and display your PowerPoint.

Review Process:

Each abstract will be reviewed and scored by 2-3 PHHP faculty volunteers, using competitive judging guidelines. Reviewers will include faculty both internal and external to your department/program in order to provide a robust review process during Research Day (your mentor will NOT judge your abstract). Judging criteria can be found here.


Abstract awards will be limited to students in PHHP graduate degree programs. A limited number of awards for future professional travel will be available to the top awardees. Winners will be announced at Research Day.
