3 Minute Thesis WinnersCongratulations to Genetics and Molecular Biology Graduate Student Rachel DuMez in the lab of Rob Dowen, UNC Departments of Biology and Cell Biology & Physiology for receiving the “People’s Choice Award” at the 2022 Three Minute Thesis Competition!

The Graduate School’s annual Three Minute Thesis competition final, an initiative of Professional Development, helps graduate students distill their research topics in only three minutes for a non-specialist audience in order to present their groundbreaking research in an easy-to-understand way. 

More than two dozen graduate students from many areas of campus, including in science and in the humanities, presented their research for a panel of judges to determine the top 10 participants who advanced to the final competition.

This year’s juried competition is one of nearly 900 similar competitions around the world and in 85 countries. The Three Minute Thesis is an initiative founded by the University of Queensland in Australia.
