Both MCTI and CSI students are required to attend the IMMUNOL 305 Immunology Journal Club for their First through Third years. Attendance is optional for Fourth year and above graduate students.

Announcement for Journal Club 2019-2020: Journal Club will now be open to faculty. To facilitate faculty attendance, we have moved Journal Club to Tuesday at 3:00 pm (LKSC Room 308) beginning Sept 24, 2019.  Faculty are encouraged to attend. The paper of the week will continue to be presented by a student, but we ask that the presenting student’s advisor make every effort to attend the journal club to facilitate discussion.  If your student is presenting, they will contact you about scheduling. Papers will be posted on this page each week.

Check back weekly for the paper that will be presented at Journal Club.
