A kick-off and information session for the 2020 Postdoc180 competition, sponsored by the Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies (OGPS) Career and Professsional Development Team, is also scheduled during Postdoc Appreciation Week. Postdoc180 is an opportunity for University of Michigan Medical School postdocs to communicate their scientific research in a 3 minute presentation. Postdocs can use this platform to improve their communication skills, connect with fellow science enthusiasts, and earn funding for professional development.
