Journal Club

Our lab meets each week to discuss experiments, data, and other issues.  We also incorporate a journal club into the meeting to talk about new and classic papers and facilitate thought about new experiments and increase our knowledge of what other labs are doing.  If you would like to attend our lab’s journal club, regularly or to discuss a specific article, please email me at  Links to the articles below are for educational purposes.
