Ryan Muir, a graduate student in the Chemistry & Chemical Biology program, won both the third place spot (a new award this year), with a prize of $1,000, and the “People’s Choice” award, with a prize of $750. His talk, “Ironing Out Antibacterial Resistance,” evoked a superhero metaphor to describe the development of powerful antibiotics that could fight resistant bacteria without hurting the body’s cells. He said the goal is to create an antibiotic version of The Hulk, which would be triggered only inside harmful bacteria, “leaving civilians out of it.”

Muir tested iterations of his talk on his family of non-scientists. “I had a couple different metaphors and The Hulk was the resounding success out of all of them,” Muir said after the competition.

The judges of the live event were , MBBS, chancellor of UCSF; Bill Banyai, PhD, co-founder and chief operating officer of Twist Bioscience; , MD, MPH, DSc, vice chancellor of research at UCSF; Sandra Waugh Ruggles, PhD, president of Summit Rock Strategy Consulting; and , PhD, professor of cellular molecular pharmacology at UCSF and a recipient of the Albert Lasker Basic Medical Research Award. Both Criswell and Ruggles are alumni of UCSF.

“The presenters were just so impressive, so poised, so polished, and working on really interesting projects,” said Criswell. “We had a really tough time choosing our top three.” In the end, she said, the winners were the ones best able to “strike the right balance” – sharing the interesting aspects of their science without introducing too much technical jargon.

She said she wanted to encourage all graduate students to the enter the Grad Slam competition. “It’s an excellent opportunity to hone your presentation skills,” she said. “And this three-minute presentation can be used in job interviews, it can be used at cocktail parties and to start conversations on the MUNI. It can be used to tell your grandparents what you do. So it will serve you well in the years to come.”
