Neuroscience Graduate Program at UCSF
On Wednesdays at noon, the Neuroscience Program, faculty, students, post-docs and research staff, meet for two discussions of recent papers, one presented by a student and one by a faculty member, and the often-lively debate which ensues benefits from the presence of individuals with widely varying areas of expertise, all interested in issues relating to the nervous system. Food will be served. This is the time when you can catch up with the laboratory exploits of friends you haven't seen all week, or chat up a faculty member with some crazy new idea you just came up with.
Registration and Attendance Guidelines (PDF)
Please note: If you are in a lab at Gallo (rotating or thesis) then you may substitute attendance at Gallo JCs for NS JCs. Please keep track of the dates that you attend Gallo JCs so that you can provide them at the end of the quarter when requested.
Description and Requirements (PDF)
Please note: The requirement that you receive coaching for 2 Neuroscience journal club presentations will be waived if you have already been through two PIBS presentations with coaching. If you have been through one PIBS presentation with coaching you should be coached for your first NS JC presentation only.
Guidelines for Journal Club Presenters (PDF)
The guidelines outline the key elements in a good JC presentation.
Presenters are asked to provide the Neuroscience Program Assistant with an electronic version of the paper so that it can posted on the internal website the week before the Journal Club. Also, presenters who wish to use PowerPoint (or a similar technology) are responsible for testing their laptop with the AV equipment in the room *before* the Journal Club
