Description:

Learn to expertly comprehend, critique, and present scientific papers

Provides a platform for students, postdoctoral fellows and faculty to present and discuss scientific papers from the current literature that deal with mechanisms underlying disease along with accompanying methods. Explores additional aspects that are relevant to conducting and conveying laboratory research, including study design and statistical analysis, manuscript and grant review, policy and practice, and risk assessment.

Learning Objectives:

Upon successfully completing this course, students will be able to:

  1. Critically evaluate scientific papers and the quality of the science, including experimental design, data analysis, and statistical approaches
  2. Assess new methodological approaches in the areas of biochemistry, physiology, biophysics, cell and molecular biology, genomics, epigenetics, proteomics, and metabolomics
  3. Evaluate etiology of diseases and defects, such as Cancer and developmental perturbations, at the molecular, cellular, tissue, whole-organ, animal, and individual-to-population levels
  4. Demonstrate the skills necessary for conducting and conveying laboratory research, including study design and manuscript preparation
  5. Give a high-quality presentation that effectively conveys summaries of scientific results and advanced concepts
