ATLANTA—Osie L. Gaines III, an alumnus of the J. Mack Robinson College of Business and 2021 Three Minute Thesis (3MT™) competition winner, presented his research at the University System of Georgia Board of Regents meeting Friday, Nov. 9.
The Board of Regents invited past 3MT™ winners from Georgia State, Georgia Tech, Augusta University and the University of Georgia to highlight their research as part of its Campus Spotlight segment, which showcases the scholarship that students are executing on campuses across the system.
Gaines’ (D.B.A. ’21) presentation, titled “Assessment of the Utility or Predictive and Prescriptive Analytics Tools (PPA) to Support/Innovate Integrative Medicine (IM) Decision-Making,” highlighted his research on the future of artificial intelligence in patient care.
“It was a blessing to be able to present my research and share my story with the Board of Regents and leadership from the colleges and universities that make up the University System of Georgia,” Gaines said. “The Three Minute Thesis competition helped me understand how to better tell the story of my research in a compelling and easy-to-understand way.”
Since competing in 3MT™ in April 2021, Gaines has completed his Doctor of Business Administration degree, and has presented his research to more than 300 researchers at academic conferences.
The Three Minute Thesis (3MT™) is a research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland in Australia in 2008 that challenges graduate students to develop academic, presentation and research communication skills. It supports the development of students’ capacities to effectively explain their research in language appropriate to an intelligent but non-specialist audience.
The Graduate School at Georgia State hosts its Three Minute Thesis (3MT™) competition each spring. Current Georgia State graduate students who are interested in participating can learn more by visiting The Graduate School’s website.
