School of Clinical Sciences at Monash Health (SCS) postgraduate students compete annually in the "Three Minute Thesis Competition (3MT)" offered in Australian universities.  The students describe their research and its significance in a manner that is comprehensible to a non-specialist audience in just 3 minutes, with a single slide to illustrate key concepts.  The School Finalists have been selected by individual Departments & Centres, and next week they will compete for a place in the Faculty's Final.  The Monash 3MT finalist will represent Monash at the trans-national final in Queensland.
