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 seminars, and a more robust question-and-answer session with the invited speaker.
Each seminar series journal club is facilitated by the host lab of that week's seminar speaker. Seminar Series Journal Club meets on Wednesdays from noon - 1 p.m. in room S740. Lunch is provided.
