Earlier today, the College of Biological Science hosted its annual 3MT (Three Minute Thesis) college-level heat and we are proud to share our 2021 winners.

Twelve graduate students presented incredibly engaging presentations that showcased the excellent and diverse research taking place across the college, all of whom are to be commended. 

With so many excellent presentations, the judges came to a difficult decision.

Alex Coates from the Department of Human Health and Nutritional Sciences was awarded first place for her presentation titled Exercise Fatigue: Getting to the Heart of the Issue.

Second place was awarded to Michael Lim from the department of Integrative Biology for his presentation titled Mother Knows Best, But How Does She Teach What's Best?

Our two finalists will receive a $250 (first place) and $150 (second place) Amazon gift card and will advance to the University wide competition.

3MT is an annual university-wide competition for graduate students in which participants present their research, creative activity, and its wider impact in 3 minutes or less to a panel of non-specialist judges. The challenge is to present complex research in an engaging, accessible and compelling way, using only one slide. The public is invited to cheer on the contestants in both the college heats and the final competition. The winner of the University of Guelph 3MT® competition will move on to a virtual Provincial Finals this summer. More information can be found here.

We wish a sincere congratulations to Alex and Michael, and to all of our presenters for an outstanding college 3MT heat!
