Three Minute Research Safety Poster Competition

The Three Minute Research Safety Poster Competition is a spin off the Three Minute Thesis (3MT) which is an academic research communication competition originally developed by the University of Queensland (UQ) in Australia. While the goal of the 3MT is to verbally summarize research in a compelling way to a non-specialist audience in three minutes or less, the aim of this competition will be to discuss safety in your research project. The presentation should discuss safety, not your research project.

All undergraduate and graduate students can participate!
