Seminar Series Journal Club

Master
Content

The purpose of the Seminar Series Journal Club is to familiarize students and faculty with the most important scientific contributions of each seminar speaker in advance of the week's seminar. This preparation allows for better comprehension of the weekly seminar topics and a more robust question-and-answer session with the invited speaker.

The Seminar Journal Club is also a for-credit course, required for 1st and 2nd year students enrolled in the neuroscience graduate program. Journal clubs are open to all neuroscience students, postdocs and faculty. Course directors are Drs. Jeannie Chin and Javier Medina. The course runs from Term 2 through Term 4. The Journal Clubs that fall before, in between, or after school terms are organized by invited speaker’s host lab.

Seminar Series Journal Club meets virtually, via Zoom, on Wednesdays from noon to 1 p.m. Each Monday, we send out an invitation to members of the neuroscience department to sign up for the Wednesday Journal Club and provide the link at that time.
