"Rapid Fire" sessions for PhD Students

Rapid Fire oral presentations are a low stress option where presenters get 6 minutes to present a summary of their research. Accompanying posters will permit attendees to delve further into topics of interest.

This new format is expected to offer greater exposure to presenters, as well as give attendees a snapshot into the wide variety of research being conducted in the metabolomics arena.

The structure of this will follow that of the popular "Three Minute Thesis"


Use a maximum of 3 PowerPoint slides no animations or 'movement'. The slides are to be presented from the beginning of the oration.

No additional electronic media (e.g. sound and video files).

No additional props (e.g. costumes, musical instruments, laboratory equipment).

Presentations are limited to 6 minutes maximum, after which you will be gagged.

There is no question time - members of the audience can ask you questions informally after the session.
