16 Sep 2021

MD-PhD candidate Rosie Stoke has won The University of Queensland’s 2021 Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition and will go on to represent UQ in the Asia-Pacific 3MT Competition next month.

The Faculty of Medicine student won the judges’ favour via video submission, speaking on foetal development in her presentation “Blowing Balloons for Small Babies”.

Ms Stoke’s research involves studying the causes of “small” baby births and the health risks these small babies have throughout their lives, in an effort to eventually prevent and lessen those risks.

Ms Stoke will now compete against 50+ other PhD candidates representing universities across Australia, New Zealand and Asia in the Asia-Pacific 3MT Competition, with the final on Wednesday 20 October.
