Event description
Join us for a Three-Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition to select the first winner of the Mark S. Wrighton Student Research Award on Aging.

About this Event

Watch doctoral candidates battle it out in a Three-Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition for the newly-created Mark S. Wrighton Award on Aging. The 3MT is an academic competition that challenges PhD students to describe their research within three minutes to a general audience.

A panel of three researchers from multiple disciplines, will select the winner of the "judge's choice" award. An additional "people's choice" winner will be voted on by the audience. The judge's choice winner will receive a $1,000 cash award and the people's choice winner will receive a $500 cash award.

A light dinner will be served. Registration is free and open to all, but required.

About the award

This new award will be given by the Harvey A. Friedman Center for Aging to recognize doctoral students who show outstanding promise as researchers on topics relevant to older adults and aging society. Students in doctoral level degree programs in any discipline at Washington University with research focused on aging are encouraged to apply. Students must submit a registration in order to be selected to compete.

Judge's choice and people's choice winners will give their 3MT presentation and receive a plaque at the annual Friedman Lecture and Awards on April 8, 2020.
