Grad Slam logoGrad Slam returns to UCSF! After a two-year hiatus, our popular science communication is back, and we are planning for an exciting live event on Thursday, March 31, 2022, 4-6 p.m., at the UCSF Mission Bay campus in Genentech Hall Auditorium. Ten PhD student finalists will present their research in three minutes or less, in language accessible to a general audience. It's a celebration not only of the finalists and contest winner, but also of graduate research at UCSF and of scientific enquiry. The event will also be live-streamed for remote viewers.

Cash prizes of $4,000, $2,000, and $1,000 will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prize winners chosen by the judges. And the audience at Mission Bay and Parnassus will choose the "People's Choice" winner, who will receive $750.
