Learning outcomes

The student has improved skills for rapid evaluation and critical reading of scientific papers. The student is be updated on the timely research topics in the focus area of the journal club. In addition, the oral presentation skills are improved.


The aim of the Journal Club (fall and/or spring semester) is to present and discuss recent scientific papers of particular relevance. Depending on the year, there can be different Journal Clubs running focusing either on a more confined area such as on the diagnostic techniques or application or state-of-the-art methods in molecular biology or having a broader scope within biomedical sciences. The Journal Club is especially recommended for students already at or contemplating to start their MSc (pro gradu) phase, but its open to anyone with an interest in the topic area of the course. At least three scientific papers per participant are required. In addition, each participant will act as an opponent for the other seminar presentations.
