The University of New Brunswick is excited to be hosting the Three Minute Thesis Eastern Regional Finals being held virtually Thursday June 16th, 7-9 pm.

The 3-Minute Thesis (3MT®) is an annual research competition developed by the University of Queensland to challenge graduate students to communicate their research and its significance in three minutes or less.

This year, ten graduate schools from across Eastern Canada are sending the winners of their local Three-minute Thesis competitions to participate in the Eastern Regionals. UNB’s own first place winner Julia Macpherson will take part with her thesis “This is snow joke: freshwater fish may be more susceptible to acute copper toxicity at winter cold temperatures.”  

Come cheer on the competitors as they prove their skills and compete for the chance to represent the East at the National 3MT® Showcase hosted by the Canadian Association for Graduate Studies (CAGS) in November 2022.
