Guidelines for Presenters at CORE Research Meetings
Every other Wednesday, CORE convenes a seminar during which investigators, residents, and fellows discuss protocol development, data analysis and interpretation, and presentation of findings. Peer review is a very valuable part of the scientific enterprise. The Wednesday Research Meetings afford an opportunity to get informal and friendly review from CORE staff as well as others at MMC who are interested in research. Thus, we welcome presentations from researchers and clinicians seeking input and advice on a range of research-related issues, including preliminary study designs, funding opportunities, grant applications, publications, and presentations.
Some presenters give a formal talk, with PowerPoint slides, followed by a question and answer period. Others have taken a more informal approach when requesting input on nascent ideas or projects in the early stages of development, providing a brief overview and spending more time asking questions of meeting attendees.
If you would like to make a presentation at a CORE Research Meeting, please contact Jean Allen at 661-7611 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
To maximize the productivity of these sessions, we ask that presenters follow the following guidelines:
- Requests to schedule a presentation should be submitted 3 weeks prior to the date of presentation. The request should include a working title or brief description of the topic.
- The final title and list of presenters should be submitted no later than 2 weeks prior to date of presentation so we can post it on our website and MMC e-News. We also will send out information to our email subscribers.
- In order to get the best feedback from CORE staff, we ask that the presenter submit on the Friday before the presentation a 1-2 page description of the study or issue to be discussed at the meeting with a short list of specific questions to be addressed at the meeting. This allows staff to be informed and prepared for discussion.
- Meetings must be completed in 1 hour to accommodate the schedules of the Dana Center and the participants. If the presenter is seeking feedback on an early stage research idea, he or she should consider a 30 minute presentation with 30 minutes for discussion. If the presentation is more developed and more limited feedback is sought, the presentation could be longer.
