Past Journal Clubs

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.

Journal Club is open to Stanford graduate students, postdocs, and faculty. Please refer to the schedule below. Faculty are encouraged to attend. The paper of the week will continue to be presented by a student; 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.
