On Thursday 12th February eight Surgery and Cancer PhD students took part in the Imperial three minute thesis competition heats in collaboration with the NHLI. Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is a research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland, which challenges PhD students to present a compelling oration on their thesis topic and its significance in just three minutes.
In total 17 students presented their work to a panel of patient judges and the Director of the Graduate school Professor Sue Gibson (pictured).
Competition was fierce but in the end winners were announced from each Department with the top two from each Department going forward to compete in the College wide competition on the 29th of April.
Congratulations to Mahim Qureshi (Clinical Research Fellow in Surgery) who won first place (pictured), Liza Selley (Computation Systems Medicine) who came second and Ben Byrne (Clinical Research fellow in Surgery) who came third.
Good luck to Mahim and Liza who will be going forward to compete in the College competition at the end of April.
