Submit your research: WSU Applebaum College Research Day

Deadline: Monday, Sept. 27, 2021

The 18th annual Eugene Applebaum College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences Research Day will be held virtually on Wednesday, Oct. 20, 2021, from 10-11:30 a.m. with a keynote lecture by Arthur Kim, MD, and student awards presented live on Zoom.

College Research Day offers the opportunity to showcase your work alongside WSU Applebaum scholars of all levels and disciplines.

In lieu of posters and in-person presentations, PowerPoints with voiceover narration are required for each abstract submission to be considered for an award. Please review the information and timeline below so you may properly prepare to participate.  

While all authors are encouraged to participate in creating the abstract and presentations outlined below, ONLY THE PRIMARY AUTHOR SHOULD SUBMIT THIS FORM. Faculty may not submit projects for their students. 

Each primary author may submit up to three separate research projects; please use a separate form for each submission.

Before you begin 

You may wish to review the rubric that will be used to evaluate student research. Awards will be given in the following categories:  

  • Health Sciences Master's and Doctoral Students 
  • Pharmaceutical Sciences Master's and Doctoral Students 
  • PharmD Students 
  • Postdoctoral Scholars 
  • Undergraduate Students 

STEP 1: Compose your abstract

Your abstract should be a maximum of 300 words total and include the following sections:

  • Introduction
  • Objectives
  • Methods
  • Results
  • Conclusion

Please compose and save your abstract in a document before you begin the research submission form. You will be asked to cut and paste it into the form below. 

STEP 2: Create a PowerPoint presentation with voiceover 

  1. Prepare a deck of 8-10 PowerPoint slides to present your research. These slides should reflect content you would normally include on a poster.

  2. Record voiceovers for each slide to explain your research just as you would in person. Keep your video to 5 minutes or less. If you need inspiration, view the 2020 College Research Day presentations.

  3. Save your presentation as a video file. Here is a helpful tutorial on how to record PPT voiceovers and save as a video file.

  4. Using the primary author's name, set your video file name to "LASTNAME, FIRST NAME_ KEYWORD" (example: Burnell, Jocelyn_ Astrophysics.mp4). NOTE: If you are submitting multiple research projects, please use a different keyword for each video file. 

  5. Upload your video to OneDrive or Google Drive. (We must be able to download your video, so please do not upload it to YouTube.)

  6. To get the URL of your video, locate the file in your OneDrive or Google Drive. Click "Share" and make sure that "anyone with the link" is selected. If we cannot access your video file, it will not be part of your submission and you will not be eligible for an award. You will cut and paste this link into the form below. 

STEP 3: Submit your research project via this online form by Monday, Sept. 27.
