Congratulations to Christina Potter and Olivia Maynard who were short-listed to compete in the semi finals of the Three Minute Thesis (3MT) on the 30th of May. Olivia went on to win third place in the final with her talk entitled 'The plain facts about tobacco packaging: how experimental research can influence policy'.

Doctoral researchers across 35 UK institutions took part in the academic competition which is designed to improve participants’ presentation and communication skills and raise awareness of their research area. Using just one slide, contestants are challenged to bring their research to life in an engaging way, using language understandable to a non-specialist audience, before the three-minute bell chimes.
