LeishSlam during WorldLeish Congress in Toledo, Thursday 18th May at 8:30

LeishSlam is a form of Science Slam, a science communication event where scientists explain their research projects in short 5-minute-talks that are easy to follow for a general audience in a casual setting, and afterwards the audience gets to vote. The important thing is not primarily the scientific outcome of the work, but to explain it in an understandable, entertaining and concise way to the public.
