Douglas students chosen as finalists for McGill’s 3-minute thesis

March 15, 2023

Once again, McGill has organized a Three Minute Thesis| Ma thèse en 180 secondes challenge, and had over 150 applicants. Over several weeks, candidates gave their 3-minute talks and 15 finalists have been selected. We are extremely pleased to announce that some of our own Douglas trainees have made it to the finalist stage.

Congratulations to Lyne Baaj (Rabin Lab), Claudia Belliveau (Mechawar Lab), Samuel Calmels (Debruille Lab), Candice Canonne (Mechawar Lab) and Pascale Ibrahim (Turecki Lab), who have been selected as finalists for McGill’s 3-MT!

These talks are organized in partnership with Acfas (Ma thèse en 180 secondes) and The Three Minute Thesis (3MT®; founded by the University of Queensland), an internationally recognized competition for thesis-based graduate students. McGill’s winner will go on to represent the university in these provincial and national competitions.
