CTR Journal Club

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


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.
