THREE MINUTE THESIS (3MT) GLYCOMICS HEATS
Three Minute Thesis (3MT) is an academic competition that challenges HDR candidates to describe their research within three minutes to a general audience. The 3MT is held at many universities across Australia, New Zealand and Asia, culminating in an Asia-Pacific 3MT Final. The competition aims to professionally develop the presentation and research communication skills of all participants, honing their ability to effectively explain their research in a language that can be understood by a non-specialist audience.
In 2020, due to the COVID-19 restrictions, the entire competition was completed online. Click on the link below to view the 2020 contestants' presentations and results.
The 3MT competition will be run again in 2021, so stay tuned for more information!
INSTITUTE FOR GLYCOMICS GRAND BALL
The Institute for Glycomics Grand Ball is an annual black-tie event which is supported by Griffith University as well as the local and broader community.
It's an unforgettable night of entertainment and fundraising, with every dollar raised going directly towards the Institute's research into finding new cures and preventions for devastating diseases of global impact.
The Institute for Glycomics established its annual Glycomics Week during the Institute’s 10th anniversary in 2010. It is celebrated annually and the aims of the event-filled week are to:
- celebrate the Institute’s growing significant research successes, and the impact this research has in the world of infectious disease, cancer, vaccine and drug discovery
- acknowledge the invaluable assistance from the Institute’s local, national and international friends, donors and supporters
- continue to develop new engagements with local schools, companies and the community.
Glycomics Week encompasses the following important presentations and events:
