During the month of May, to celebrate FA Awareness Month, FARA will host the annual Flash Talks series. These webinars will feature presentations from graduate students, postdocs, and residents involved in FA research. This is a great chance for FA patients, caregivers, and friends to learn about FARA funded research and get to know and interact with junior investigators involved in FA research. The primary audience for these flash talks is the FA patient and caregiver community, so presentations should be understandable for a lay audience. Scientists, researchers, and clinicians are also welcome to attend the talks. You can view flash talk examples here.

We encourage all postdocs and grad students working in the FA field to express their interest in participating by submitting a short abstract and filling out this form by March 1, 2023. Speakers will be notified by March 21, 2023. The schedule of talks will be finalized in April and the webinar series will take place in May.

Attendees will be able to vote for their favorite presentation in each session and the presentations with the most votes will be recognized with an award.
