Pilot Project Ignite Pitch Talks

Applicants for the Pacific Northwest Center for Translational Environmental Health Pilot Project Program will be sharing their research ideas in five minute Ignite Pitches. 

This is a chance to learn about the state-of-the-art science, technology, and stakeholder engagement ideas being pursued by members in the Center and ask questions about their latest research ideas. 

When: Friday, May 7 from 3:00-4:30 PM

Where: Join Zoom Meeting


Password: 218039

Speakers: Each speaker has 5 minutes to share their ideas followed by 5 minutes for questions.
