CSRB 4th floor seminar room, 4939 Childrens Pl, St. Louis, MO 63110

In this workshop series, Dr. Brings and Dr. Massaly will guide you through the process of building scientific graphics for oral communication, how to organize a poster for a conference and how to create an efficient PowerPoint presentation. This workshop will also help you build your poster for the final presentation of your data at the end of the summer.

You will be guided and taught on the use of 2 different software products:
1. GraphPad Prism
Drs. Brings and Massaly will provide you with a couple of data sets that you will be able to analyze and run statistics on. Additionally, they will guide you to the process of building a scientific representation of those data sets, include statistics on those graphics, and export them as images.

2. Affinity Designer
This software comes handy in managing and building multi panel figures. You will be guided through the basic functions offered by this software to organize and uniform your graphic designs.
In addition, Drs. Brings and Massaly will provide insights on designing, creating, and presenting both a poster (using Affinity Designer) and a data blitz (using PowerPoint) session. After this session, students will be asked to prepare a poster to present to the department on Friday, August 6.
