Congratulations to Katie McCauley
The 3MT® - Three Minute Thesis Competition is a research communication contest, which challenges graduate students to present a compelling oration on their research and its significance in just three minutes in language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.
Katie McCauley, a Masters student in our department, presented her research “Improving the overwintering capability of winter canola” to an audience of peers and non-specialists in the recent College-level 3MT competition. She competed against 32 PhD and MS students from throughout CASNR in a preliminary round in early March and advanced from this round to the CASNR finals competition which was held March 25th, 2015. We are proud to say that Katie represented the department well in the finals, bringing home first place in CASNR. She won a $200 cash prize and will compete in the Graduate College finals April 16th, 2015 at 3:30PM in the Little Theater at the Student Union. Please come out and show your support.
Dr. Brett Carver received the Millers Award at the Wheat Quality Council 2015 Annual Meeting, congratulations Dr. Carver.
Dr. Angela Post was an invited speaker and presented a convincing argument in front of a national audience of millers and bakers that we are not going to perish by consuming wheat treated with roundup.
