Microbes in the Morning

The Center for Infectious Diseases host a morning journal club every other Thursday at 9:30 am throughout the year. All members of the Center for Infectious Diseases may present relevant peer reviewed publications for discussion. The presenter should provide bagels and juice for the audience. Microbes in the Morning journal club is currently organized by Erik Kopping from the Thanassi Lab.
