Carleigh Fedorka, a doctoral candidate at the University of Kentucky (UK) Gluck Equine Research Center, won UK’s Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition on Nov. 15, in the Gatton College of Business and Economics’ Kincaid Auditorium.

Fedorka was one of nine graduate students who made it to the finals. She received a $1,000 prize and an all-expense-paid trip to the Southern Council of Graduate Schools Regional Competition to be held March 2-5, 2017, in Annapolis, Maryland.

The 3MT rules, which were originally developed at a university in New Zealand, allow students three minutes to discuss their research using only one presentation slide and no gimmicks (e.g., props, costumes, songs, etc.).

Fedorka’s presentation was titled “The dirty broodmare … cleaned up.” She first gave her presentation on biologic therapeutics as an endometritis treatment during the Department of Veterinary Science’s 3MT competition in April where she was amongst the top three finalists. For the campus-wide competition Fedorka was amongst the top 15 selected for the first round that was narrowed down to eight before moving on to the finals
