Case Western Reserve University will hold the second annual Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition on February 17, 2023, 12:45 - 3:00 PM at the Tinkham Veale University Center!

Developed by the University of Queensland and now held at over 900 institutions across more than 80 countries around the world, 3MT celebrates the exciting research conducted by grad students around the world. This competition cultivates students' academic, presentation, and research communication skills. Presenting in a 3MT competition increases your capacity to effectively explain your research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience with a single PowerPoint slide.
