Four Schulich Medicine & Dentistry students have three minutes to win it

Schulich Medicine & Dentistry will be well-represented at the University-wide Three Minute Thesis (3MT) finals, happening Thursday, April 10.

Four of the 20 finalists at the University-wide competition hail from graduate programs at Schulich Medicine & Dentistry and include Joe Zeppa, PhD, Microbiology and Immunology, supervised by John McCormick; Kamini Marathe, MSc, Medical Biophysics, supervised by Rob Bartha; Kariym Joachim, MSc, Epidemiology and Biostatistics, supervised by Kathy Speechley; and Samantha Davie, MSc, Epidemiology and Biostatistics supervised by Cheryl Forchuk, Mark Speechley, and Robert Stewart.

3MT competitions are held around the world and give students one static powerpoint slide and 180 seconds to explain their research and its impact to a panel of non-specialist judges.

Faculty heats were held during the first week of April in 11 faculties across campus with 80 presentations given in total. The four students from Schulich Medicine & Dentistry battled against 10 others from their home faculty, and 70 others from across campus to place in the top 20.

All are invited to come out and cheer on the four finalists April 10 at 3:00 p.m. in the Davenport Theatre, Talbot College. To find out more about the 3MT competition, click here.
