Undergraduate 3MT Winners

Congratulations to the winners of the Undergraduate Biochemistry 3MT event

Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is an academic competition developed by The University of Queensland, Australia. Typically, these competitions are directed at graduate students. Considering the wide range of undergraduate research at UBC, on November 25, we had an undergraduate 3MT competition. Challenging their communication skills, undergrads in BIOC 448 and BIOC 449 shared their research topics in 3 minutes.  10 undergrad student participated, with a panel of graduate student judges and an audience of over 30 undergraduates.
