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.
