Two NARILIS PhD students awarded at the UNamur competition of "MT180"

First Prize for Camille Huart and Prize from the public for Sophie Ayama

On March 31 was held the first selection round of the laureates of the competition "Ma thèse en 180 secondes". Six PhD students from the UNamur took on the challenge to present their research in just 180 seconds: Marie-Ange Angladon (chemistry), Léa Chartier (chemistry), Sophie Ayama (biology), Damien Detraux (biology) and Camille Huart (biology) from the NARILIS institute, as well as Amélie Lachapelle (law) from the NADI institute.

The jury selected two candidates for the next stage of the competition. The first prize was awarded to Camille Huart for her talk "Irradier des flics pour vaincre le cancer". The second prize was given to Amélie Lachapelle who presented "Le lanceur d'alerte fiscale, traitre ou héros?". The prize from the public went to Sophie Ayama for her pitch "Les nouvelles aventures de PACMAN".

Camille, Amélie and Sophie will thus represent the UNamur at the interuniversity final on May 22 in Mons, where they will compete with PhD students from the five other universities of the Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles (UCLouvain, ULB, ULiège, UMons and Université Saint-Louis-Bruxelles).
