The fourth annual UF Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition was held on Thursday, Nov. 9 before a crowd of more than 100 spectators in the Reitz Union Chamber Room. Ten finalists from various colleges were allotted three minutes to tell an educated but non-specialist audience and a panel of judges about their dissertation research. As always, the competitors gave outstanding presentations, and we congratulate each of them for performance.
