Congratulations to the winners of Loyola's Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) Competition 2020, where Masters and PhD students from a wide range of Loyola's graduate programs were asked to demonstrate their research communication skills by sharing the content and impact of their work to a general audience. Our first place winner was Natasha Lenart, a Masters student from the Department of Cellular & Molecular Oncology at the Stritch School of Medicine, who shared information on her research in a presentation titled, "Cancer Vaccines and Immunotherapy". Ms. Lenart will be going on to compete in the regional Three Minute Thesis competition taking place at the Midwestern Association of Graduate Schools in April, 2020. Emily Datskou of the Department of English and Anya Nikolai-Yogerst from the Department of Microbiology & Immunology nabbed the second and third place prizes, respectively.
