Biomedical Journal Club

One of the many aims is to keep abreast of the scientific literature, which has expanded greatly over recent years. The journal club has, therefore, become an integral part of continuous biomedical and biophysical education. Four years ago the new research area of biophysics in frame with the department of Optical and biophysical systems of the Institute of Physics was established. Thus, we would like to establish a regular Biomedical Journal Club in the Institute of Physics.

Why are Journal Clubs important?
• No one reads enough. Journal clubs are an excellent way to keep up and expand.
• Not every journal club is memorable, but we tend to remember many of them. It’s good practice even for experienced speakers.
