Videos of the week: Three Minute Thesis (3MT) presentations by Central Clinical School students

The Central Clinical School 3MT (Three Minute Thesis) heat was held Tuesday 4 Aug. There were six strong contenders on a range of subjects. The winner was Ms Shanzana Khan, and runner up and winner of the 'People's Choice' vote was Ms Ashlee Conway. Shanzana spoke on the influence of the Y chromosome lineage on blood pressure regulation. Ashlee had great fun with porphyria, otherwise and attractively known as 'Dracula's Disease'. We have created a Youtube playlist of their presentations on CCS youtube channel. Shanzana will be competing at the Faculty final on Friday 21 August at 1 pm, Clayton. The event will be live streamed to the Alfred Centre Level 5 lecture theatre - all welcome.
