Heat 3 of the 3MT beats the bad weather!

Participants in the third and final heat of the Three Minute Thesis competition had to find their their way through icy rain and slush to attend the event - but it proved to be worth the trouble. Ten students presented today on topics that included "using math to see inside the human body", "the role of cellular damage in the body's response to biomaterials", or  "strategies on winning the game of life".

Friends and colleagues also found their way through the messy weather to support the presenters and vote for the People's Choice Award.

A big thank you to the judges of heat 3 - Dr. Yolande Chan (VP Research office), Dr. George Brandie (astronomer and communications instructor), and Maureen Garvie (novelist and editor with McGill-Queen's Press) - for taking on the hard task of deciding who will make it to the final.
