Journal Club 2017-18

Please find the schedule for the 2017-2018 SCRC journal club series below. Journal Club sessions are Fridays 12-1pm in the Physiology Library, BMSB 431 unless stated otherwise.

The main goal of the SCRC Journal Club series is for students to interact and share their research with others. Their presentations can feature some of their own research data or a paper related to their project describing how it is relevant to their research project. They are also encouraged to include and introduce the audience to any newer methodological approaches being used in their project.

We have tried to accommodate most of the trainees in our schedule. Cancellations are not acceptable. In case of unavoidable circumstances, trainees can arrange to switch their scheduled talks with another presenter and inform the coordinator of any changes.

Also, in an attempt to be more open and inclusive, we extend this invitation to all SCRC members (faculty, staff and trainees) and affiliate members. So, for those of you who are not aware of this journal club, we strongly encourage you to join us and boost your neuroscience enthusiasm!

Finally, we'll be happy to consider any suggestions or ideas you may have on how to improve this journal club. Any input is very much appreciated!


See our Event Calendar, journal club news postings, or search our site for journal club to see details on scheduled presentations.
