Thursdays at 14.00 in meeting room
Recommendations for combined Journal Club & Progress Report presentations
IT IS STRONGLY ENCOURAGED THAT EVERYBODY LINKS THE ARTICLE
TO HIS /HER OWN WORK
Start with a presentation of an article, which is important with respect to your
own work and/or closely related to it. The paper does not have to be from a
prominent journal or even published very recently. Tell in your own words:
- what was the aim of the investigation
- what were the main results of the study
- were the investigators able to answer the aim
- how would you criticize the work
- how is this paper related to your own work and work in the lab in general; what
is the "take-home message" of the study
Keep it understandable and brief (max. 10–15 min).
Then continue with your own work (progress report). Present:
- background of your work (if not clarified through the article above)
- the aim of your own work
- methods you have used or are planning to use
- current status of the work
- major breakthroughs and/or problems in the work
- evaluate the importance of your current or anticipated results with respect to
existing knowledge on the subject
Keep it simple, understandable and brief (20 min).
Your presentation will be followed by a short general discussion.
