Applications open for Plant Biology 2024-ECPS 3 Minute thesis!

Attention all Early Career Plant Scientists! Do you think you have what it takes to explain the intricacies of your research in less time than it takes to make a cup of tea? Well then, get ready to compete in the ASPB Three-Minute Thesis competition, at Plant Biology 2024!

In this exhilarating event, your science communication chops will be put to test in a race against the clock to present your research in just three short minutes using only a single slide.

Our esteemed panel of judges will be evaluating each presentation based on not only its scientific merit, but also its creativity, clarity, and overall entertainment value. So, if you want to win big, you’ll need to bring your A-game.

And did we mention there are prizes? The top five presenters will receive a travel grant to attend the Plant Biology 2024 Meeting in Honolulu, Hawaii and a chance to compete for a $1,000 grand prize by presenting their Three-Minute Thesis on the plenary stage!

So what are you waiting for? Get your virtual 3MT ready and sign up to participate in the ASPB Three Minute Thesis Competition. It’s the ultimate test of your scicomm prowess, showmanship, and passion for plants – and it’s sure to be a blast!
