Health Sciences 3MT Finalists Selected in Strongly Fought Competition

In what was undoubtedly one of the tightest and most competitive Faculty 3 Minute Thesis competitions ever held, 17 Faculty of Health Sciences students fought it out on Tuesday to decide two finalists to compete in the University 3 Minute Thesis (3MT) final on 8 September.

The well-deserved Faculty winners are Clare McGuiness from the School of Psychology for a speech titled ‘Do you use your head or go with your gut?’ and Anatomy and Pathology’s Viythia Katharesan, who spoke on ‘The young and the bold are not the same as the golden old.’

Both Faculty winners will receive a $500 prize from the Northern Communities Health Foundation.

For an opportunity to hear Clare and Viythia give their presentations, along with eight other PhD students from across the University, you are invited to attend the University 3MT final:

When: Tuesday 8 September
Time: 6:00 – 7:30pm
Venue: The Braggs Lecture Theatre, North Terrace campus

Phone 8313 0884

The presentations will be judged by a panel of experts, with the winner to go on to compete in the national 3MT final in Queensland. We also invite you to have your say by voting for the People’s Choice Award.

Come along and be inspired by the next generation of brilliant researchers in what will be a fast-paced and demanding communication challenge, and an enjoyable evening for all.
