The Organizers

Led by Che-Min, our team of four students is comprised of upper-year or graduated students from the Life Sciences.

Che-Min

I graduated from honours biochemistry at UBC and am in  graduate studies. I research how cancer cells can escape a solid tumour to reach other parts of the body, also known as metastasis. Outside of school, I like to play music, try new food with friends, and organize events like these!

Laveniya

I am a 5th year undergraduate student in the BSc Pharmacology program at UBC. In my free time, I research how the unique genetic makeup of a patient can affect their response to certain cancer therapeutics. Outside of academics, I enjoy hiking and playing ultimate!

Adam

I recently graduated from UBC in Microbiology and Immunology, and am passionate about science communication and research. I am doing research on how electrical stimulation of nerves can help regulate the blood pressure of spinal cord injury patients.

Michelle

I am a 4th year student at UBC studying Cellular Anatomical and Physiological Sciences, and am currently working at the Vancouver Stroke Program through Science Co-op. In my free time, I love to read mystery novels, collect stationery, and draw!

This undergraduate 3MT vs the Graduate 3MT?

The original 3 minute-thesis program was founded by the University of Queensland. UBC’s Undergraduate 3MT is not affiliated in any way with the University of Queensland but we would like to acknowledge and credit them with the original 3MT event conceptualization. Rules, structure, and scoring are all different to accommodate the undergraduate student level.
