Jennifer Woo, a doctoral student at the Zilber School of Public Health, will be presenting her thesis, “The Long Reach of Childhood: Early-life Adversity and Adult Breast Cancer Risk” in the final round of the UWM Graduate School Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) event.
The UWM Graduate School, Office of Research, and UWM Research Foundation, are sponsoring the 2nd Annual Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) event on April 10, 2019.
Developed by The University of Queensland, 3MT has been adopted in 66 countries and cultivates students’ academic, presentation, and research communication skills. This unique academic competition is open to all doctoral students and students in a terminal master’s degree program (Master of Fine Arts degree) currently working on a dissertation or thesis. The competition supports graduate students’ capacity to effectively explain their research in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.
