Case Western Reserve University will hold the third annual Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition on February 16, 2024, 12:45 - 3:30 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.
