GUIDANCE FOR PRESENTERS
Who should present?
- When your group’s turn comes around, ideally a group of students/post-docs should get together to select the subject.
- One (or more) person should be chosen to present the subject.
- The other members of the group should expect to actively contribute to the discussion section.
- The aim is for the group to contribute, rather than just one specific individual.
What subject should I choose?
- One of broad interest to as wide an HIU audience as possible.
- It should be what you consider to be a top immunology paper(s) from the last 6 months.
- You may also want to highlight commentaries / news and views etc related to the paper.
How long should my presentation be?
What should my presentation include?
- Background to the field and context of the paper – educational is fine.
- Summary of key methods and results from the paper – maybe a few of the key figures, probably not every single figure and supplementary figure, like you might in a traditional journal club.
- Comments on their interpretation / discussion.
- Finish with a slide posing 2-3 questions or comments that act to stimulate discussion.
Will my presentation be judged?
- Your presentation will not be judged, but a scoring system will be used to gauge the potential significance of the paper (at least in the opinion of those present).
- The presenting group will not vote on their own paper(s).
The group that chooses the highest scoring paper in 2013 will win dinner in the White Hart or similar.
