Presentation: Ernesto Abel-Santos and Jacqueline Phan
Jacqueline Phan and her mentor, Ernesto Abel-Santos (both Chemistry and Biochemistry), placed second and won the People's Choice Award in the three-minute thesis (3MT) competition at the Western Association of Graduate School's (WAGS) 2017 conference, earlier this month. In November, under professor Abel-Santos’ mentorship, Phan placed first in the 2016 Rebel Grad Slam — a 3MT competition in which UNLV graduate students showcased their research and scholarship — earning her, in part, funding to travel to Seattle to represent UNLV in the first annual WAGS 3MT competition.
