Prerequisite: BLCHM graduate student.
This Core Curriculum Course for all First Year Graduate Students in the Molecular Biology and Biological Chemistry Programs consists of two complementary parts. The first half of the semester is a structured journal club that investigates in depth assigned papers from the primary literature of a specific area of research. The second half of the semester consists of the mentored development of a mini-grant proposal that further investigates questions raised in the journal club discussions. These semester-long courses have 5-8 students and are generally co-taught by several faculty. Students elect one Journal Club/Grant Writing course from among approximately five classes focused on different topics that are offered each Spring Semester
