Love Story Wins Sciences 3-Minute Thesis Final
A biochemistry story about love and betrayal has won the 2018 Faculty of Sciences 3-Minute Thesis final.
The top two presentations came from the School of Biological Sciences in what was described by the judges as ‘hardest ever’ faculty final to adjudicate.
The judges fell in love with PhD candidate Joseph Rossi’s presentation titled, ‘Love, betrayal and cunning: A biochemical interaction story’.
Emily Skelly’s talk on ‘Past mouth microbes for present mouth maladies’ was runner-up.
The People’s Choice award was won by Ben Keiller from the School of Agriculture, Food and Wine. Ben’s presentation was titled, ‘Renewable, carbon-neutral COAL?!’
Joseph and Emily will now represent the Faculty of Sciences at the University finals on September 11.
