The 3MT is an academic competition that challenges doctoral students to describe their research within three minutes to a general audience.

It celebrates the discoveries made by research students and develops their skills in communicating the importance and value of their research to the broader community.

Mr Hendriks will take to the stage for his presentation ‘Wheat that outcompetes its weeds’, Ms Porter, who is supervised by Graham Centre member Associate Professor Shokoofeh Shamsi will speak on ‘Parasites - the winners in a changing environment?’ and Mr Nignpense’s research through the Functional Grains Centre will talk about ‘Let's get cereal about polyphenols’
