fellow graduate students competed in early December for the chance to
win almost $2000 in prizes and a travel expenses paid trip to the
regional 3MT in Charlotte. Graduate students and faculty in the
audience heard about groundbreaking research from across the social and
medical sciences. The entire field was exceptionally strong and each of
our participants should be commended for their research efforts and
After two rounds, the field was

in celebrating these talented and dedicated graduate students.
