With more than 20 participants 3MM (three minutes of Microbiology) is a go!

Recognizing the importance of effective communication in Science and cross-pollination of ideas and techniques, the Department of Microbiology is hosting a 3MM (three minutes of Microbiology!) on May 29 during the Microbiology Annual Retreat.

The 3MM event is encouraging students and professors to share their research using a 3MT (3 minute thesis) style presentation. The Department will recognize student participation and the three best presentations in each of the categories: Masters and PhD theses.

Regardless of the competition, the main goal of this activity is the sharing of ideas in a positive environment, which is respectful of diversity in its many forms. In addition, the microbiology students will acquire skills to enter formal 3MT competitions held every year at the University of Manitoba and all over the world.

Participants: please see below important information!
