Graduate students from the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering won first place in both categories at Clemson University’s Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition on Nov. 2.
Joshua Osuofa won the graduate student category for his presentation, “Filters for faster production of Biologics,” and James Foster won the PhD candidate category for his presentation, “Innovative Materials for the Screening of Plutonium in Water Sources.” Dr. Scott Husson advises both students.
James will go on to represent Clemson at the February 2019 Conference of Southern Graduate Schools (CSGS) 3MT competition in Knoxville, TN.
3MT is a research communication competition that gives higher degree students just three minutes to present their work and its significance without using jargon to a non-specialist audience. This year, more than 50 students representing all colleges at the university participated in the competition.
