CGSA has hosted Journal Club in years past but has struggled with attendance and participation. For those interested in Journal Club, we have now joined forces with the Symbiosis Journal Club organized by post-doc Sheila Kitchen in Biology. Symbiosis Journal Club meets the first Tuesday of each month at rotating locations downtown, usually someplace with happy hour. Contact Sheila to be added to the listserv.
If you have an interesting article worthy of discussion among CIDD grads and are willing to host a special meeting of CIDD grads journal club, please email our listserv (L-CIDD-GRADS [at] lists.psu.edu) with a time, location and article to schedule a journal club meeting. If you contact one of our officers, we might even pitch in for coffee or snacks to fuel the meeting.
What: Relaxed but professional venue for discussing journal articles, presenting research and talking shop
Who: Everyone except PIs, but specifically:
- Graduate students
- Early-career researchers (e.g., undergrad volunteers/interns, lab technicians, etc)
When: TBA, subscribe to our listserv or join the Biology Department’s Symbiosis Journal Club for regular journal club meetings.
