Journal Club

 

Each student will give a ~20-25 minute presentation plus ~5 minutes for discussion of one research article during the Journal Club. The article (a primary research paper, no reviews please) will be selected with the help of the research mentor after discussing the student’s research interests and background. We ask that students arrange for a member of the research mentor’s group to attend the journal club to facilitate the presentations and discussions.
