Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) Competition 2021

Congratulations to the winners of Loyola's Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) Competition 2021, 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. This year’s competition took place virtually and we were happy to welcome our largest audience yet! Our first place winner was Adri Lugosan, a doctoral student from the Department of Chemistry, who shared information on her research in a presentation titled, "Iron Complexes for Dinitrogen Activation: Inspired by Nature, Synthesized by Us ". Ms. Lugosan will be going on to compete in the regional Three Minute Thesis competition taking place at the Midwestern Association of Graduate Schools in March, 2021.  Aleksandra Vuchkovska from the Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology and Alice Tischler from the Department of Microbiology & Immunology nabbed the second and third place prizes, respectively.
