Since 2015, Georgia Tech's Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) competition has helped graduate students hone their communication skills by challenging them to share their research in three minutes in a way anyone could understand.

From the College of Sciences, physics Ph.D. student Lin Xin and chemistry/biochemistry Ph.D. student Suttipong "Jay" Suttapitugsakul are finalists in the 2019 Georgia Tech 3 Minute Thesis Competition.

Xin's presentation is titled "Beat the Quantum Limit." His research is about doing precise measurements beyond the most precise quantum limit by using cold atoms. His principal investigator is School of Physics Professor Michael Chapman.

Suttapitugsakul's presentation is titled "Not Just a Sugar Coating! Understanding the Language of Cells through Their Sweet Surface."  He studies the roles and functions of cell-surface glycoproteins by integrating mass-spectrometry based proteomics with chemical and enzymatic reactions. The goal is to better understand how cell type, cell state, and extracellular environment affects cell-surface glycoproteins in order to discover new biomarkers and drug targets. His principal investigator is Ronghu Wu, an associate professor in the School of Chemistry and Biochemistry.
