Winners from the Graduate School’s Three-Minute Thesis (3MT) Event

We had a wonderful turn-out with 16 competitors across 6 different programs at our 2nd annual 3MT event in May—right after final exams.  The 3MT competitions are held at public and private institutions around the country and internationally. The event is open to all current graduate or master’s students, who have graduated in the last academic year. Participants get one slide and three minutes to share their project or research findings from a wide array of disciplines — from the sciences to the humanities and everything in between.

Competitors presented in front of a panel of community judges, their peers, and a number of Hood faculty and staff.  There were two prize categories:  1st Place ($600 cash prize) and The People’s Choice Award (based on audience vote–$200 each).  Lizzie Terrell (BMS MS grad) took 1st Place with her engaging talk, entitled “Development of a live-cell assay to investigate protein interactions,” and the two People’s Choice Awards went to Maura Page (Humanities MA grad) and Martha Swicegood (MBA grad). Check out the recorded winners at or on our YouTube channel.
