Spinal Cord Research Centre

Journal Club 2016-17

Please find the schedule for the 2016-2017 SCRC journal club series below. Journal Club sessions are Fridays 12-1pm in the Physiology Library, BMSB 431 unless stated otherwise.

This year you will see presentations from invited principal investigators, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students featuring the discussion of a recently published paper or some of their own research data. So, please don't miss any session, things are going to get interesting!

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!

This is an opportunity for us to come together and have in-depth discussions about the current literature and the overall implications of new studies, enhancing everyone's knowledge of the field at large and about each other's research interests within the department; providing possible opportunities to collaborate as well. This is also an opportunity for trainees to practice vital presentation skills in front of a friendly audience. The club provides an informal environment for researchers to discuss, debate and learn from their peers as well as experts.

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!
