Virology Journal Club
The Virology Journal Club meets on Wednesdays at 1:30 pm in the Department of Microbiology conference room (1450 Mayo Building). The VJC is led by Dr. Steve Rice.
The setting is informal, so it's a great time to become more comfortable speaking in front of others and leading a discussion about a specific virus research article.
