Can you effectively communicate your research in non-technical terms?

This hands-on series of three lunchtime sessions will cover the nuts and bolts of writing about scientific research in a manner that is engaging, clear and effective. These are skills that will help you increase the impact of your research. By the end of the workshop series, you will have a well-crafted summary of your research and the skills to effectively describe future projects.
