Samantha Harder wins 2nd place at 3 Minute Thesis competition (2014)

Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is a research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland that invites both Master’s and doctoral level students to present a summary of their thesis and its significance in just three minutes in language appropriate for the general public using only one static PowerPoint slide.

Medical Physics PhD candidate, Samantha Harder, finished in 2nd place for her presentation entitled "Conquering Cancer: A Physcist's Quest for Personalized Therapy" at the Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) competition held at UVic on March 6th.  Samantha also won the people's choice award voted on by the large public audience in attendance. The event was well organized by the Faculty of Graduate Studies, and impressive presentations by the five finalists were assessed in an American Idol-style format by an all-star panel of judges.  Congratulations Samantha!
