CTR Journal Club

Journal club sessions occur every second and fourth Wednesday of each month at 4:00pm. Everyone is welcome to attend!

Aim

The goal of the CTR Journal Club is to discuss cutting edge research articles focusing on the cellular and molecular biology of placental development and function, not only in humans but also in model organisms and cell culture systems. This includes the following topics: epigenetic regulation, lineage specification, implantation, trophoblast differentiation, placental structure and function, and maternal-fetal interactions during pregnancy.

The journal club provides CTR members and other researchers alike with a friendly environment to familiarize themselves with the current literature, to critique experimental design and to have informal discussions about the "Big Picture" regarding the biology of the trophoblast lineage, the placenta and pregnancy.

Everyone is welcome to attend the CTR journal club! You do not need to be a CTR member.

 

Next meeting 

The CTR journal club has finished for the 2016/2017 academic year. Thank you to everyone who made it a success!

The journal club will start up again in late October 2017. We will advertise for speakers for the 2017/2018 season in late summer or early autumn. If you are interested, please contact .
