DSCB 216 Journal Clubs

DSCB journal clubs are held twice a month. First and second year DSCB students are required to present once in each of the two journal clubs. Students in their third year and beyond are encouraged to attend and participate in both.

The Developmental Biology Journal Club takes place at the Mission Bay campus. This series is student-led and is intended to be a less formal environment in which students can develop their presentation skills in a group of peers. Students in their second year and beyond are encouraged to serve as “student coaches” to help first year students prepare their presentations. Papers selected for presentation in this journal club should be recent and impactful manuscripts related to developmental biology.

The Stem Cell Journal Club takes place on the Parnassus campus, with two presenters each week. Student presenters are required to work with 2 faculty coaches and any number of student coaches (usually 2-3) to prepare for their presentations. Papers presented in this series should be recent and impactful manuscripts related to stem cell biology.
