Dr. Jong Park

Jong Park, PhD

We are excited to announce that Jong Park, PhD, postdoctoral fellow in the Weinstein lab, placed 1st overall in the NIH-wide 2023 Three-minute Talks (TmT) Competition with his talk “A Gill Model of Lung Gas-exchange Blood Vasculature.”

Dr. Park joined the TmT competition as the NICHD finalist on June 22, 2023, alongside fellows from NHGRI, NIDCR, NIAMS, NEI, NCATS, NIDCD, NIAID, NIDDK, NIEHS and NLM.

The TmT competition is an annual science communication program at the NIH. The competition fosters an environment for fellows to convey their research in a concise and meaningful way to a broad scientific audience.

The 2023 event opened with welcoming remarks from Megan Bohn, PhD, NIAID Predoctoral/Postdoctoral Program Coordinator and Nina F. Schor, MD, PhD, NIH Deputy Director for Intramural Research. After 11 intriguing three-minute talks from fellows, Lisa Federer, PhD, Acting Director in the National Library of Medicine’s Office of Strategic Initiatives, described her career experiences in her talk “The Accidental Data Librarian: A Journey to Data Science.”

We also want to congratulate this year’s 2nd and 3rd place NICHD TmT awardees—from our internal competition on June 8—on a job well done:

  • 2nd place winner: Leah Greenspan, PhD, postdoctoral fellow in the Weinstein lab
  • 3rd place winner: Sanjana Sundararajan, PhD, postdoctoral fellow in the Dasso lab

Thank you to all our 2023 TmT Program participants! Your presentations and slides were fantastic. It truly was another successful year for the TmT.
