Pre-candidate students register for this class Fall and Winter terms of their second year. All students give one or more seminars each year they are in graduate school. Faculty assist the students in preparation of the seminar and provide an analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the presentation after the seminar. The faculty at the University of Michigan feel that oral communication skills are very important for scientists whether they are engaged in teaching, research in academic institutions, research in government agencies, research in the private sector, or many other career areas for doctorally prepared biological scientists.

First year students are encouraged to attend this course if they are rotating in an Immunology Program laboratory. Second year and later students are required to attend this course every semester, but will ordinarily only register for the two semesters of their second year. The Journal Club is aimed at increasing the students’ awareness of current areas of research in immunology and providing students with an opportunity to practice and improve their oral presentation skills. Students present the experimental findings of one or two recent scientific reports on a contemporary topic in immunology. The Journal Club Director and/or the student’s mentor will provide verbal feedback of the presentation. Student presentations are critiqued on the basis of 1) style and clarity of the presentation 2) general knowledge of the topic as reflected by presentation of relevant background information and discussion of questions and 3) data interpretation. Senior graduate students are expected to present their own thesis research rather than recent literature. The student’s lab mentor (and thesis committee for research presentations) MUST BE PRESENT to provide support and feedback on the student’s performance. It is expected that the student’s mentor will introduce the student. It is the student’s responsibility.
