Cronin Group Meetings
Meetings are subject to frequent change, sometimes at short notice, so always check before your meeting that it will happen on time and on the right day. All changes to speakers in the group meetings must be arranged with the group meeting organisers at least two weeks in advance.
Group meetingsGroup meetings occur weekly at 9.00am on Friday mornings prior to lab clean and consist of two talks:
Research Update: This talk will present the results of your research from the time of your previous group meeting or, if you are new to the group, an introduction to the project you are undertaking in the group. All presentations should be in PowerPoint format and should be deposited on the group server on the morning of the day prior to the meeting at the latest.
Literature Review: This talk will review an area of literature which is relevant to your field of study or which presents a topic which will be of use to the group as a whole. These talks are an opportunity to discuss and raise awareness of the most up to date literature in the field, but also to gain a general overview of the research you are conducting. These talks should contain direct discussion of peer reviewed articles and not just review articles unless appropriate. All presentations should be in PowerPoint format and should be deposited on the group server on the morning of the day prior to the meeting at the latest.
Subgroup meetingsSubgroup meetings occur every two months in the week after the deadline for submission of you OPS. These meetings last for 2 hours and everyone will have 5-10 minutes to present & discuss their current research/papers. Everyone should prepare a small number of PowerPoint slides (maximum 7) which should be deposited in the folder appropriate to your subgroup prior to the meeting.
Other meetingsImpromptu meetings and meetings relating to research project areas will occur regularly and you should check the meetings calendar frequently to be aware of any meetings which are relevant to your work. You should discuss the requirements for each meeting with the organiser of the meeting or your appropriate Post-Doc prior to each meeting to ensure you are fully prepared.
