90 Second Poster Pitch

Trainees can register to present their work in a 90 Second Poster Pitch Session.  These brief presentations occur before each poster session and allow the trainee to "advertise" their poster in a 90 second, one slide presentation.



Both the FLRC and UK Cardiovascular Research Day are known for being exceedingly social events where trainees are given ample space to interact with leaders in the field.  Networking games and door prizes are part of the fun of the meeting.
