Microbiology Journal Club

Weekly meeting of faculty and students in the Field of Microbiology and beyond. In a departure from the traditional journal club model of presenting papers, this year the meetings will be focused on student learning and methods common to Microbiology graduate students. The purpose of these changes is to grant students access to the following two resources:

  1. An opportunity to learn basic methods from one another that would be helpful for most graduate students to know
  2. An opportunity to give practice talks and talk about data in a low-stakes, faculty-free format

Each week, one or both of these methods will be featured and the format will be discussed in the first meeting, Monday August 30 at 3:45.

This Journal club is led by Dr. Esther Angert and Dr. Heather Feaga and co-organized by graduate student volunteers.

The Microbiology Journal Club currently meets  on Mondays from 3:45 – 4:45. Students may enroll for credit under course number BioMI 7910.

To receive each week’s paper by email, subscribe to the CIHMID email list.
