Jillian Ramos, a PhD student in Dragony Fu’s lab (part of the Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology program) won first place in the Three Minute Thesis competition. To win this competition, students have to explain their complicated research in a way that a general audience can find accessible. The catch, you have to do this all in under three minutes! Jillian presented her work called: Modify or Die: When Protein Translation Goes Awry and successfully captured first place prize as well as the people’s choice award.
Congrats Jillian! Read an article about the competition and a transcript of Jillian’s presentation here.
