Three Minute Thesis


The Three Minute Thesis (3MT) is an academic competition that assists graduate students in fostering effective presentations and communication skills. Participants have just three minutes to explain the breadth and significance of their research projects to a non-specialist audience.

The inaugural UAlberta 3MT competition was held in 2015 and the event continues to grow every year. Some departments hold their own 3MT competitions as departmental finals but all graduate students are welcome to present at the semi-finals. The UAlberta Finals winners receive a cash prize and a trip to Western Canadian Regional Finals.

Watch our livestream event or view the 2020 3MT Finalists' videos. Hungry for more? You can ask any of the Finalists questions until May 18th!

Understanding Blood Flow in the Liver to Save Children's Lives

Description: Liver transplantation is the only definite cure for patients with terminal liver diseases. Every patient that receives a liver transplant is routinely assessed using Doppler ultrasound due to its safety, availability, and effectiveness to monitor the newly reinstalled liver. However, there is a catch; while some Doppler ultrasound findings are easy to interpret, the meaning of other parameters is less well understood, especially in children. Dr. Ruiz will present her latest research focused on the role of Doppler ultrasound after a liver transplant in children.
