CEBIO 224 - Molecular Basis of Disease Journal Club

1 Credit

Faculty member in charge: Kevin McCarthy, Ph.D., Cellular Biology and Anatomy. The journal club, which has been a constant weekly meeting in the Department of Pathology since 1997, serves to integrate basic science knowledge with mechanisms of disease progression. The journal club will consist of weekly presentations and discussions by students and faculty of current research reports. For student enrolled in the Cell Biology Course “Molecular Basis of Disease” enrollment in the journal club is mandatory. Each student will be expected to present and discuss at least one paper during the semester. Evaluation criteria for students enrolled in the journal club for academic credit include the quality of student presentations and the student participation in weekly discussions during the journal club. This course will be run within the Pathology track of the graduate program in the Department of Cell Biology and Anatomy. At present the role in the course development is primarily faculty members with joint appointments in the Departments of Cell Biology and Anatomy and Pathology.
