Our trainees include undergraduate, graduate, and medical students as well as post-doctoral and clinical fellows. They work with the faculty who are Core Members of the Rogel Cancer Center, spanning the areas of basic science, clinical research, and population studies.

Trainee Research Symposium: June 9, 2023; 1 - 3p.m.

New this year: We are hosting a 3-Minute Thesis (3MT®) Competition for masters and Ph.D. students during the symposium. The Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is an academic competition that challenges current graduate and professional students to to develop and showcase their research communication skills. Students have three minutes to present a compelling discussion on their research topic. 3MT® is not an exercise in trivializing research, instead forcing competitors to consolidate their ideas and crystallize their research discoveries. A panel of judges will select the first- and second-place winners, while the People's Choice Award will be selected by the audience.

We will accept 10-15 competitors and the symposium will also feature a keynote address. The survey registration link serves as an RSVP for attendees, 3MT competitors, and judges.

This event is FREE and open to all trainees and faculty of the Rogel Cancer Center.

For questions and/or interest in volunteering to plan the symposium, please reach out to Elise Pfaltzgraff: [email protected].
