Jenna Beam, a doctoral candidate in Brian Conlon’s lab, is the UNC-Chapel Hill Three Minute Thesis (3MT) People’s Choice winner (determined by audience votes). Jenna and nine other UNC-Chapel Hill graduate students presented their research in front of a large audience and panel of judges – and with only three minutes for their presentations – on Tuesday, October 29. The Graduate School hosts the annual event.

Jenna’s presentation was titled “The Battle Against the Bugs: Antibiotics versus Staph.”
