The final heat of the 2019 Three Minute Thesis competition took place today in Mitchell Hall.  As with the first two heats, all participants did an excellent job of showcasing their research.  From plastics to painkillers, zinc isotopes to 3D modelling, depression, peacekeepers, human milk and nursing mothers, message matching and using Art to create a spiritual border, these were the topics of the day.

Nine more graduate students presented their research in just 3 minutes today.  Held at Mitchell Hall Event Commons, this 3 Minute Thesis competition is lining up to be a doozy.

Today we heard about research on the war against various cancers, vitamin deficiencies and creating healthier spines, recycling concrete to make better structures for safety and better power storage systems for electric vehicles, as well as looking at historical figures in Kingston and how to improve historical investigations.
