Competition Continues with Heat 2 of the 3MT

Heat 2 of the 2017 Queen's Three Minute Thesis Event saw six graduate students competing to progress to the final competition with impressive presentations on topics such as: the underlying cellular mechanisms in traumatic brain injury from an evolutionary standpoint; using ultrasound movies for early cancer diagnosis; restoring skull symmetry; the reception of Correggio’s two altarpieces for Modena in their confraternity settings; submaximal fitness as a predictor of disease and premature mortality; and the implications of mandatory prenatal care provision for women through the new Turkish family medicine model.

Special thanks to today’s judges: Mike Best, a 4th year PhD student in Clinical Psychology and past winner of the Queen’s 3MTn, Dr. Helene Ouellette-Kuntz, an epidemiologist and Professor in the Departments of Public Health Sciences and Psychiatry (Division of Developmental Disabilities), and Carey Bidtnes, who is responsible for the execution of KEDCO's labour market strategy. We are grateful to them for making the difficult decisions that drive our competition forward. We were also glad to see a full-house of audience members vote for the People’s Choice Award.
