BMB Journal Club: BCH 6936


Each week, a student in the Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Advanced Concentration presents a journal article from the current literature to the group of BMB students, postdocs, and faculty. Senior (4th year) students have the option of giving a research seminar or presenting a journal article. One faculty member and one or two students are assigned as “readers” and they are available to answer questions and help with the preparation of the presentation. The readers also provide the student with feedback on the presentation to aid in the development of strong presentation skills and the ability to critically evaluate scientific work.

Spring 2017 Invited Guest Speaker – Dr. Peter Baumann
Date: April 6, 2017
Topic: Telomerase, RNA Processing and Chromosome Dynamics
This year we are excited to announce Dr. Peter Baumann as our Biochemistry and Molecular Biology student-invited speaker. Dr. Baumann is a Professor and Investigator at the Stowers Institute for Medical Research, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and Professor at the University of Kansas Medical School. His lab studies many facets of chromosome biology including telomerase RNA processing, meiosos, hybridization, and ploidy. Dr. Baumann has received many awards and honors including the 2003 Pew Scholar in Biomedical Sciences and HHMI Early Career Scientist Award in 2009. We are thrilled to have Dr. Baumann visit the University of Florida and to learn more about the amazing work his lab is doing to understand many key elements of chromosome biology.

On March 14, 2017, graduate students will present their research in the Boyce competition.
