AMREP student journal club kicks off

Dr Jay Jha chairing a session at the 2017 AMREP EMCR
retreat. Jay is an early career researcher in CCS's Diabetes 
department.
The Alfred Precinct of Monash University has started a Journal Club series that will be run solely for students (Honours, Masters and PhD). Its purpose is to enable students to gain confidence and experience in presenting papers in a journal club setting, as well as bringing students around the AMREP campus together for both social and collaborative interaction.   While many departments in this Precinct do already run a Journal Club, this one is aimed solely at students, to help train them in presenting in a non-intimidating setting, amongst their peers.

Each presentation will be chaired by an Early/Mid Career Researcher to provide feedback and also aid with any questions that are raised about the presented paper.


The journal club is held in a relaxed setting which discuss recent and important papers of general interest to researchers around the AMREP precinct. This aims to increase research education and presentation. The journal club will be held monthly. Looking forward to seeing and hearing from you.

The first speakers at our meeting covered the topic of immunology, and included the students Daniel Thiele (Honours student), Anisha Ansari and Angela Nguyen (PhD students). The event was facilitated by Dr Katharine Goodall (Research fellow) of the Immunology Department.

June meeting date to be confirmed.
