Joint & Bone Initiative

BJI Showcase Series

These monthly events are open to the BJI membership (i.e. investigators, trainees, and partners) as well as the broader MSK community locally and beyond. Showcases are typically one hour long with two or three 10-15 minutes presentations. Occasionally, guest speakers are invited to speak in a more traditional seminar format. All presenters are encouraged to use plain language as much as possible to support cross disciplinary engagement. They are also provided with a flexible slide template to support their effort in sharing their work and interacting with colleagues. Goals may vary from speaker to speaker from troubleshooting challenges, gaining new perspectives on a problem or methodology, creating new collaborative opportunities, celebrating success and/or exploring future study ideas (see examples of presentations types below).
