Student Research Presentation

As part of this symposium, students may compete for cash scholarship awards by presenting their research virtually — whether it be from a bench, clinical or literature review experience, with projects from a previous competition allowed.

Although the theme for this year's One Health Day event is Using Biosensors to Advance One Health, any One Health research topic is acceptable. 

Submit an abstract

Interested students should submit a title and abstract of no more than 250 words to Martha Nowak (msnowak@ksu.edu) by 5 p.m. Tuesday Nov. 3, 2020.

Developing a research presentation

After notification of abstract approval, students are required to record their presentation ahead of time, sharing their screen using PowerPoint or Prezi with no more than 10 slides, and describing their project in 10 minutes or less.

Once completed, the viewer link of the cloud recording should be sent to Martha at msnowak@ksu.eduby Monday, Nov. 16, so that it can be posted for the judges' consideration.

Winners announced at the conclusion of the symposium, with all presentation recordings publicly available post-competition on BioNexus KC's website.
