Journal Club

Journal Club is an opportunity for all interested students, faculty, and staff to discuss papers suggested by the guest speakers prior to the semi-annual symposium. Each speaker is the focus of one of the meetings. Below are links to the speakers and their suggested readings.

To sign up for the journal club reminders go to the Journal Club profile on MCommunity and click Join Group or email Anna Cronenwett.

Student members of the Journal Club have the opportunity to personally get to know our guest speakers by dining with them, escorting them to events, and introducing them at the symposium. Click the Volunteer button below to sign up.
