The 2022 3MT final will be hosted by Tom Howell and Nicola Luksic from CBC’s Ideas from the Trenches. This year’s event will also feature a keynote by U of T alumna and former 3MT runner-up Dr. Senjuti Saha, a molecular biologist and activist working at the intersections of clinical microbiology and global health. In 2018, Dr. Saha was the first Bangladeshi to be appointed to WHO’s Polio Transition Independent Monitoring Board. More recently, she also led the team that successfully completed the genome sequencing of the SARS Cov-2 virus in Bangladesh.

We hope to see you there!
