Info Sessions/Workshops

This page contains resources presented through LUROP-sponsored information sessions and workshops.  During the spring of 2013, LUROP will sponsor further workshops on topics such as applying for a LUROP fellowship, constructing an effective research poster presentation, and writing a compelling oral presentation.


Writing an Effective Abstract: A Workshop

It is important to be able to describe your research briefly, accurately, and compellingly for various audiences, whether you are applying for a conference, fellowship, or graduate school, preparing for an interview, or simply thinking about the significance of your work.  One of the best ways to do so is by writing a research abstract, which is required for many types of applications.  Among the resources used in this workshop were a list of strategies for writing an abstract, an example of one conference's abstract guidelines, two sample abstracts, and an abstract rubric for evaluating, and helping you write, abstracts.


National Institutes of Health (NIH) Research Opportunities Info Session

Held Nov. 28, 2012, this info session presented information on two programs that should interest Loyola students who want to conduct biomedical research.  To find more information about the NIH Summer Internship Program and the Postbaccalaureate Intramural Training Award, visit LUROP's external opportunities page.
