Keynote & Student Speakers


The Graduate School and the Society of Duke Fellows are hosting the ninth annual Duke GRADx talks, an event showcasing graduate research. Students are invited to share their research in a fast-paced and engaging format inspired by TED and TEDx talks. Rather than showcasing finished projects, we ask presenters to share a defining question that they are driven to investigate or explore further. Presenters are challenged to communicate their ideas in a clear, visually appealing way that is understandable to a broad audience in the short time frame of 5-6 minutes.
