GRADUATE STUDENT SEMINAR COURSE
This course is graduate seminar for Biochemistry students. The course covers the essentials, not only of giving a good seminar (every student will present a 50 min seminar for critique), but also basic principles of grantsmanship; clear scientific writing; teaching tips; and topics related to career development.
We will start each meeting with a discussion of any talks in the Biochemistry Lecture series that we had during the previous week. What were the strong and weak points of that outside speaker? What can we learn from that presentation that we can incorporate into our speaking style (or avoid!)?
Biochem 299 – Thursdays from 4-5:30 pm in the Biochem Conference Room
Students: Elly Park, Marcel Charbonnet, Suzie Burke, Vinodh Kurella, Brajesh Kumar, Dave Eckert, Tim Wakeman, Tanya Roy, Saumya Ramanathan
