Spotlight Session: How sequencing is changing your field of research


We’re looking for early-career researchers to take part in the Spotlight Session at Nanopore Community Meeting 2021, pitching for a spot on the virtual plenary stage.

The theme is “How sequencing is changing your field”, so we’re inviting three people to give a talk on this broad subject, applied to their area of research.

How it will work:

  • All three participants will (virtually) take to the main plenary stage for a 2-minute pitch on why their presentation should be the one to be presented there and then, with a couple of minutes for questions each.
  • The audience will then vote on the one they’d most like to see, and the winner stays on to give the presentation on the main stage.
  • The other two presenters will then present their talks in the Mini Theatre in the break immediately following, so everyone gets a chance to speak.

How to apply:

Please submit your abstract below, plus, provide a video telling us why you think you’d be great for the Spotlight Session.

Please email if you have any questions.
