METHODOLOGY
Organize by general to specific methodologies. Can
include summary figure; flow chart, image,
photographs. Can bullet to shorten. Few words as
possible. sure to include subjects, experimental
design, statistical methods, drugs and equipment
used. General methods will elicit appropriate
questions from audience members who care to
know details.

PURPOSE (or objective)
Purpose, Objective, Aim, Goal: Your
hypothesis or specific aim goes here. What
are you doing? Very short. 1 to 2 sentences.
HYPOTHESIS (ES)
Purpose, Objective, Aim, Goal: Your
hypothesis or specific aim goes here. What
are you doing? Very short. 1 to 2 sentences.
Essentially, walk the audience member through
what you did in terms they can understand.
RESULTS
Consider bullet pointing main findings and include
more figures than text. Try to manipulate most of
images/photographs
outside
of
PowerPoint
(Photoshop, etc). Photos should be 300 dots per inch
to start with. They should be .jpg, .bmp, .tif, or .gif
format. Excel graphs can be copied from within Excel
and dropped into place. They can be stretched and
reshaped with no trouble from within PowerPoint.
Click once on them them to manipulate or format
them (if you click twice, you get a spread sheet). If
you click on their corner then hold down the shift key,
you will increase them proportionally, and not get
odd-looking skinny or squashed lettering. Tables from
Excel or Word can also be manipulated. Gifs and
images from clipart in PowerPoint should also look
good when inserted directly.
