Group leaders' journal club at BioNut

The Group leaders’ journal club is an event at the Department of Biosciences and Nutrition that aim towards an increased network for PhD students. We also see that this event would result in increased interactions between different research groups through the interactions between PhD students and group leaders from different research groups.

In addition we hope this event will help newly started research groups or members of small research groups to interact with people outside their research group. The Journal club will be lead by two group leaders, occur monthly, and include a selected group of students ie. PhD students registered at Department of Biosciences and Nutrition that have not done their half-time. Every occasion will include a discussion on one research article selected for its broad interest and high scientific quality. The group leader pair will be changed biannually.

Participation in the journal club will provide higher education credits that can be used for the doctoral education. Invited students need to let Monica Ahlberg know if they are unable to attend.

Martin Bergö Peter Swoboda Current group leaders: Professor Martin Bergö and Senior Researcher Peter Swoboda.
Upcoming meetings: March 22, April 19, June 7 at 9:45 in the BLUE seminar room.
