Lauren Jevons wins University Three Minute Thesis Grand Final

 A huge congratulations to doctoral researcher Lauren Jevons, from the Faculty of Medicine, who won the top award at this year's Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) University Grand Final.

Lauren competed against doctoral researchers from our seven other faculties, and impressed the judges to win first prize. Lauren will now go on to represent the University at the 3MT national semi-finals later in the year.

Winning the People’s Choice vote, as well as Joint Runner Up prize from the Judging Panel, was Katie St John Glew, from the Faculty of Natural and Environmental Sciences. Ivan Ling, from the Faculty of Engineering and the Environment, was also named as Joint Runner up by the Judging Panel.

Well done to all who took part and we wish Lauren the best of luck in the next stage of the competition!
