The program Coordinator hosts a monthly Journal Club series in order to bring together students, post-docs and faculty to discuss current topics in the literature. Presentations are at 10 AM on Monday. Each student will present a research discussion based on recent papers on scientific topics of general interest. This provides a unique opportunity for students to hone their presentation skills and to bring the department up to date with regard to recent scientific developments. An important aspect of the training of every graduate student is indeed the development of speaking skills. Graduate students are expected to attend all of the Journal clubs.
