Title: Curing cancer, one band-aid at a time
My name is Reham Mounzer and my research focusses on cell metabolism in cancer. As scientists, we are used to communicating our research in complex and lengthy presentations. It, therefore, becomes tricky to explain our work to the general public in a simple and effective way. The 3MT has been a challenging, yet refreshing, experience and has allowed me to develop the ability to explain my research concisely, simply, and quickly. I highly recommend it to all PhD students, as the skills you gain through 3MT are incredibly useful. I am in the last year of my PhD and look forward to a career in cancer research, where I hope to identify new targets for cancer therapy.
