Imaging Solutions for Scientific Communication Seminar Handouts

There will be no regularly scheduled imaging seminars during the fall term of 2017. Seminars will resume beginning in January of 2018. Guides, slide decks and other self-help resources remain available by scrolling down on this web page.

RIS skills training is based on the unique ways that researchers use proprietary scientific applications, Microsoft Office and a variety graphics programs to create, acquire and edit images that are included in grant applications, journal articles and presentations to the scientific community.

  • Lunchtime Seminars are also given at no charge and cover topics including poster making, proper PowerPoint techniques and Photoshop tricks
  • Customized small group and one-on-one training is also available by contacting Research Imaging Solutions
  • Seminars are available to all Harvard employees, students and HMS Hospital Affiliates

The Harvard Medical School is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians. The Harvard Medical School designates this live activity for a maximum of 1 AMA PRA category 1 Credit ™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

We invite your suggestions for new topics for classes and seminars - chances are that if you're curious about a topic others are too. If that's the case, than it's a perfect topic for a class or a seminar! Make a suggestion for a workshop, seminar or handout.
