Congratulations to the winners of Loyola's Three Minute Thesis Competition 2022, where 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 Emily Ma, a doctoral student from the Department of Integrative Cell Biology, who shared information on her research in a presentation titled, "KMT2D in Breast Cancer Development". Ms. Ma will be going on to compete in the regional Three Minute Thesis competition taking place at the Midwestern Association of Graduate Schools in April, 2022. Maggie Jones of the Department of Sociology and Monika Evdokimova from the Department of Microbiology & Immunology nabbed the second and third place prizes, respectively.
