Communicating research with three minutes and a slide
At a time when it is more important than ever for scientists to communicate clearly with the public, eight University PhD students and postdocs will do their best to summarize their research with just three minutes and a slide.
They are finalists in the University’s annual Three Minute Thesis competition, which will be held at 4 p.m., next Thursday, April 12, in the Class of ’62 Auditorium at the Medical Center.
A total of 44 students initially entered the competition, which was founded at University of Queensland, and is now in its third year at Rochester. The eight finalists are:
- Jillian Ramos (biology)
- Derek Crowe (genetics, development, and stem cells)
- Parker Riley (computer science)
- Robert Maynard (cellular biology of disease)
- Marian Ackun-Farmmer (biomedical engineering)
- Lauren VanGelder (chemistry)
- Simeon Abiola (translational biomedical science)
- Kathryn-Mary Wakim (neuroscience)
The winner will receive a $750 research travel award. There are also $500 and $200 research travel awards, respectively, for the runner-up and the people’s choice winner.
Congratulations Kamy on reaching the finals!!!Read More: Neuroscience Graduate Student Kathryn-Mary Wakim one of Eight Finalists in the Three Minute Thesis Competition
