Journal Clubs are held every other week on Mondays from 12:00 – 1:00 pm in TK Cheung Library, 234 Animal Science Bldg. 

The program creates a mutually supportive and positive learning environment for lab members to share, discuss and debate their opinions, obtain feedback, and improve their presentation and communication skills.
