PhD students will gain exposure to top research and methods in our field through the detailed evaluation of top journal articles in the broad field of metabolic disease. Dr. Holland and colleagues will supervise this journal-based course. Students will select a paper of their choice from: Cell, Nature, Science, Cell Metabolism, Nature Medicine, Nature Metabolism, or eLife from the last 3 years. Each week an assigned student will lead a discussion of their selected paper, its relevance to the field, and highlight 1unique method from their chosen paper. All students are required to read the paper in detail and be prepared to provide an overview of any figure. A highlight of this course is the opportunity to invite an author from the chosen paper, or an expert from the University of Utah to join our discussion via video conferencing. Students are encouraged to use this as an opportunity to network as they identify future postdoctoral mentors.
