What? The 3MT includes presentations lasting 3 minutes using one presentation slide. This is a great opportunity to present your research in an "elevator pitch" style to others outside your discipline.

Learn more about Pivot-RP and ORCID at this virtual workshop. Pivot is a searchable database of external opportunities featuring approximately $50 billion of available funding from federal, non-federal, and international sponsors. ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier that you own and control, and that distinguishes you from every other researcher. Check back here soon to register for the workshop.
