Speed Networking

What is Speed Networking?

Join faculty from across the Georgia CTSA for an energetic and dynamic evening of networking at our version of The Gong Show!

Participants are given the opportunity to make a 3-4 minute presentation to potential collaborators from both clinical and basic science backgrounds. Be careful! If you exceed the allotted amount of time you are gonged off the stage!

Participants are also welcome to come as observers rather than presenters.

Why Participate:

  1. Present your research to investigators beyond your network.
  2. Use this interactive format to meet a new potential collaborator at other Georgia CTSA institutions
  3. Discover new resources to further your science.
