Once a month, members of Hamdan Lab come together to discuss the doings and progress of the lab. Aside from managerial aspects of the meeting, it also serves as a wonderful opportunity to get together and share new findings and innovations in science. Therefore, we allocate a portion of our time together to journal club. Journal club revolves around reading a published paper and evaluating its applicability to our own work, which facilitates progressive conversations. Not only do we expand on our current understanding of the subject, but we have the opportunity to bounce ideas off each other to further the collaborative efforts of Hamdan Lab.
