Congratulations to our very own Kevin Boreskie who placed 1st in last night’s 3MT competition at St. John’s College. The University of Manitoba’s Faculty of Graduate Studies held its Three Minute Thesis competition on March 18 and saw 14 challengers run through 3 heats and a wildcard round to explain their research in three minutes or less.
“I’m very grateful to have been selected given the cool and diverse research that was presented. A big thank you to Dr. Duhamel, the Duhamel lab and the SBRC for their support,” he said.
Kevin’s win explained his research on physical activity and exercise measures as prognostic tools to predict risk for cardiovascular disease. His first-place finish here means he qualifies to compete in the Western Regional 3MT competition on April 17 at the University of Northern BC.
