Types of Presentations
Academic Research Award (ARA)
The Academic Research Award (ARA) is limited to graduate students who will be pursuing Master’s, Doctorate and PharmD degrees at the time of the meeting. The work presented should have been performed by the student only, and collaborative work should not be presented. Each student chosen to participate will give a 15-20 min live slide presentation to the judging committee as well as general audience. The students will be judged on the research content as well as the presentation skills including the ability to communicate to a wide audience. As reflected in the session title, an alternate speaker cannot be substituted for the ARA presenting author who is listed in the abstract submission. A presenting author who cannot present on the meeting date should inform the Dana Gates as soon as possible at [email protected] to withdraw his or her abstract.
Rapid Fire Presentation (RFP)
The Regular Poster Presentations from previous years is being replaced with Rapid Fire Presentations (RFP) for the virtual format of this meeting. The RFPs cover all topics related to pharmaceutical research, development and technology. The pre-recorded presentation time is 5-7 minutes followed by 3-5 minutes of live questions. Presenters are expected send their pre-recorded presentation by April 2, 2021 and are expected to attend the live session to address questions. Please contact Sameera Sansare at [email protected] with any questions.
Short Topic Presentations (STP)
The Short Topic Presentation (STP) format is designed to give academic and industrial scientists in the field the opportunity to present and discuss their research in a smaller, more interactive setting and is open to all NERDG participants. The topics for presentations are open to any area of pharmaceutical research, development and technology. The live presentation time is 15-20 min followed by 10-15 minutes of questions. The lead author (first author) is defined as the individual who has performed the majority of the research and is expected to be the one presenting the material. The lead author should present and answer questions during the live session. However, if s/he cannot be present the day of the conference, a substitute presenter should be designated. The lead author should inform the committee as soon as possible at [email protected].
