CBTE Journal Club

The CBTE Journal club meets once a week for six weeks via Zoom (4/23/2020-5/28/2020). Each discussion is an hour long, and is broken into two thirty-minute presentations where a student will discuss a paper of their choice. This club allows students to explore scientific papers in areas that intrigue them, and acts as a learning experience for all. Each meeting has a faculty member facilitating conversation, and providing input. Attendance is required for the T32 trainees, but meetings are open to anyone.

*The CBTE Journal Club is not a part of the BioE seminars*
