The Graduate School is pleased to announce the winners of the Three Minute Thesis competition, held 9 June 2016.

It was an extremely close competition featuring seven excellent presentations - all of which were strictly limited to three minutes and one supporting slide.

The result was a runner-up prize for Akang Ekpenyong-Akiba (Department of Molecular and Cell Biology) for her presentation "Towards Cellular Spring-cleaning".
