Coimbra Group 3-Minute Thesis winners announced at JU

On 7 March 2024 the finals of the Coimbra 3-Minute Thesis JU were held at the Jagiellonian University. As part of the competition, PhD students of Coimbra Group member institutions talk about their doctoral research projects during a 3-minute-long presentation in English. The winner, Justyna Srebro, will represent the Jagiellonian University at the 3MT final in Turku, Finland.

The competition was won by Justyna Srebro, author of the presentation "Is bigger always better? Potential of minitablets". The second place was taken by Weronika Obrochta for the presentation "The true picture of health", while the third prize was awarded to Monika Pasternak, whose presentation was entitled "Revolutionizing drug delivery with the TRAP-cage". The audience award went to Elwira Nieboga for the presentation "Are we all doomed to lose our teeth?".

The winners were announced by the Jury consisting of prof. Armen Edigarian, JU Vice-Rector for Eductational Affairs, Prof. Marek Sanak, Medical College Vice-Rector's Proxy for Research and International Cooperation, Dr hab. Sebastian Kołodziejczyk, Director of the Doctoral School in the Humanities, Dominika Stopa, Director of the Jagiellonian Language Centre, and Maciej Wcisło, Head of the JU Association of Doctoral Students. 

The winner of CG 3MT JU will represent the Jagiellonian University at the 3MT final, this year held in Turku, Finland. Three winners of the final will present their theses at the Coimbra Group General Assembly.

The Coimbra Group 3-Minute-Thesis (CG 3MT) competition is held at the Jagiellonian University for the fourth time. The participants are supposed to present their doctoral research in just 3 minutes, using only one slide. The contest is based on a concept developed by the University of Queensland, which quickly spread across Australia and New Zealand, and has since then gone global. It consists of two main stages, the first of which is held at the university level, followed by 3-Minute-Thesis European finals, organised by the Coimbra Group.
