Meeting Notes:

Please select key recent papers, mostly those with high relevance to various research fields in cancer and specifically breast cancer. Try to be broad in selecting the papers; it is highly recommended that you do not choose papers with a very close insight to your own direct project. Please consider this point when you select your manuscript and get your mentor’s approval. If you feel that you need my help in selecting a paper, do not hesitate to contact Dr. Rachel Schiff.

This seminar series is also designed to give an opportunity to the trainee to deliver a formal presentation that includes introduction to the topic and a clear presentation of the results, and to lead a discussion of the strengths and weaknesses of the paper. Finally, it is important that all attendees read the paper before the presentation to allow a fruitful discussion.

Two weeks before your day to present: Submit a pdf of the manuscript to Janice Lemmon
