Lisa Taxier wins inaugural 3MT competition

Graduate student Lisa Taxier was named the winner of UWM’s inaugural Three Minute Thesis competition! This competition encourages students to effectively explain their graduate research projects in three minutes, in a language appropriate to a non-specialist audience. The competition drew nearly 100 students and the 14 finalists presented yesterday. Lisa’s 3MT talk explained our Alzheimer’s Association-funded project to study how sex, estrogens, and a particular genetic risk factor for late-onset Alzheimer’s interact to affect memory.
