The 2018 Grad Slam contest will culminate in an exciting live event, which will take place on Thursday, March 22, 2018, 4-6 p.m., at the UCSF Mission Bay campus in Genentech Hall Auditorium. It's a celebration not only of the finalists and contest winner, but also of graduate research at UCSF and of scientific enquiry. As 2014 finalist Laura Simpson said, this is the closest thing UCSF has to a football game.
Watch for announcements about the students chosen as finalists in February.
The Graduate Division strongly encourages all PhD students who have advanced to candidacy to enter the Grad Slam contest, to hone their communications skills. Students must declare their intent to enter by December 8, 2017. Read more about the contest.
