Anthony Incognito and Ben Bradshaw

Anthony Incognito, Doctoral Candidate in Human Health & Nutritional Sciences, won the 2019 3MT Campus Finals at the University of Guelph.

Competition dates, contact information and registration forms are available on the Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies website.

The competition is an excellent opportunity for graduate students to showcase their research to a wider audience, improve their oral presentation skills and build excitement for research happening right here at U of G! There are prizes at the college heats and campus finals. Earn the chance to represent the University of Guelph at the provincial competition in Windsor.


To participate in the competition, students must be currently registered in a thesis-based (or MRP) master’s program or PhD program at the University of Guelph, with substantial progress on their research and analysis. Course-based master’s students are ineligible.

All students, staff, faculty and community members are invited to attend the U of G campus finals on April 3.
