Seminars, Works-in-Progress, and Journal Clubs

Seminars, works-in-progress, and journal clubs are central to the educational program. The opportunities to regularly encounter scientists and build critical analysis and presentation skills are of major importance. All students are required to participate in seminars and journal club activities during the entire duration of their Program.

First-year students will fulfill the journal club requirement within their Core Curriculum. They are encouraged to attend additional seminars and journal clubs in areas of their particular interest or in areas that they wish to explore.

Advanced students are expected to participate in the journal club and seminar activities of their MTAs and to participate in laboratory journal clubs and departmental seminars that are recommended by their dissertation advisor.
