U-HackMed NeuroChats

Inspired by the global journal club offered by The Sloan Kettering Center, the Lyda Hill Department of Bioinformatics is introducing a virtual series focused on Neuroinformatics, starting June 2022. We will invite first authors (graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, early career researchers) of important cutting-edge publications to share their insights and research with a global audience and participate in a dynamic discussion-based event. Check out our website

Causality Journal Club

This series highlights important publications on Causal Inference and is presented by graduate students and postdoctoral fellows for stimulating discussion and exchange of ideas. The Journal Club is held in hybrid format - virtually on Teams and at E4.380 on last Tuesday of every month at 4 PM. This is a departmental journal club for interested members of the Lyda Hill Department of Bioinformatics and Green Center for Systems Biology. If you are interested in attending, please contact Prapti Mody
