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. 1015 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.
