About

How-to Talks by Postdocs is a series of virtual talks for the general VCU health sciences community, presented by postdocs. These are not seminar talks, but an opportunity for postdocs to hone their science communication skills by informing the public about a topic related to the health sciences. Each How-to Talk is about one-hour.

The series will begin on resume on September 27, 2021 with the How-to Talks Sponsored Session: Telling a Scientific Story that is Accessible and Approachable with Oscar Keyes, MFA and Stacey Wahl, Ph.D. Join this How-to Talks Sponsored Session to hear from VCU Libraries faculty and learn how to structure your talk so that it is accessible to a variety of learners and approachable from every level of scientific background.

For a full list of this year’s offerings, visit the Upcoming Talks page.

All members of the VCU community and Virginia Biotechnology Research Park are welcome to attend. If you are a postdoc interested in applying to speak, please visit our Application Details section.

How-to Talks by Postdocs is brought to you by the Health Sciences Library (VCU Libraries), C. Kenneth and Dianne Wright Center for Clinical and Translational Research, and the VCU Postdoctoral Association.
