Yuta Nakagawa, Department of Chemistry, wins UTokyo Three Minute Thesis competition
Professor Keisuke Goda, Department of Chemistry
Yuta Nakagawa, a Ph.D. student in the Department of Chemistry, was awarded the grand prize in the UTokyo Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition, which was held on May 23, 2020. 3MT is an international research communication competition in which doctoral students have three minutes to present their research in a concise and engaging manner in English using a single slide. Nakagawa's presentation was on a method he developed, called droplet microfluidics, to rapidly identify and select slow-growing cancer cells, which are considered a cause of cancer relapse.
He will continue on to represent UTokyo at the 2020 Asia-Pacific 3MT competition, which will be held this autumn.
