3 minutes & 1 slide is no match for our students!

Last night the finalists in this year's 3MT competition, showed just how good they are at distilling their research in just 3 minutes.  You would think only having to talk for 3 minutes would be easy, well it isn't.   Just ask all of our 3MT participants this year - but they did make it look easy.  Throughout the last 2 weeks, our graduate students have presented their research in such an engaging way for all of us to understand.  From preliminary rounds to the final, our students worked hard, improving each time they got up to speak.  Now they have a ready made speech to continue to enthral us all and to get us to want to ask more questions about what they are doing.

Congratulations to all who participated this year and congratulations to Priyanka Gogna (Epidemiology) who will now go on to represent Queen's at this years Ontario 3MT on the 19th April at York University.  Priyanka's presentation title was "When Prevention Could be the Cure".  Supervised by Dr Will King from the Public Health Sciences department, this Master of Science student talked about rather than always looking for a cure, perhaps we should be looking more at how to prevent. 

Runner Up was Dhruv Bisaria from Astrophysics and Astronomy with his talk on "Accretion in Old Galaxies - A Piece of the Puzzle"

Well done everyone and thank you to our wonderful judges and emcee for the night Julie Brown from CKWS.
