Three minute thesis competition 2015
Congratulations to this year’s 3-Minute Thesis Competition Winner, Zoe Marks, who won competition finals at both Institute and faculty level, and came runner up in the university-wide final, for her presentation on Novel type I interferon (IFN) signalling in breast and ovarian cancer.
This year’s participants provided an outstanding research showcase demonstrating skill and creativity as they condensed their PhD research into just three minutes.
The competition asks PhD students to give a compelling presentation on their thesis in language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.
