Five Minute Research Pitch heat winners head to national finals

Published: Monday 27th October 2014

Similar to the national Three Minute Thesis, 5RP is an exciting opportunity for researchers to showcase their work to a national audience and win up to $7000 towards their research.

Competitors have just five minutes, and three powerpoint slides, to present their current research in a way that is easily understood by a non-academic audience.

At the initial ACU heats on 17 October, Dr Ross Clark, Faculty of Health Sciences, was awarded first place in the Science and Health Group with his presentation Limited Translation: Can recent advances change this?

It was a week of double success for Ross who was also awarded a prestigious NHMRC grant last week.

Dr Peter Koval, also from the Faculty of Health Sciences, was awarded first place in the Social Sciences and Humanities Group for his presentation Managing Emotions.

Both Peter and Ross were awarded $1000 towards their research.

Ms Simeon Dale, Faculty of Health Sciences, was awarded second place in the Science and Health Group for her presentation The Quality in Acute Stroke Care (QASC) Implementation Project.

Dr Michael Theophilos, Faculty of Theology and Philosophy, was awarded second place in the Social Sciences and Humanities Group for his presentation Oxyrhynchus: Recovering Lost Manuscripts from the Ancient World.

Melbourne-based ACU staff are warmly encouraged to attend the national final and support their colleagues.
