EEB 5895: Invest Sp Topics

This page lists weekly meetings of the Rubega/Elphick labs. Students (grads and undergrads) who are doing research in our labs and who are able to attend on a regular basis should sign up for 1 credit to participate in this class. Grad students doing research are expected to present at least once a semester; if time permits, twice is better, with at least one presentation an update of some part of your research (the other can be on whatever is helpful to you with your research - a paper from the literature, stats questions, practice talk, etc., etc.). Undergraduates and BS/MS students should expect to present something on their research once a semester. If you need a permission number, please contact Margaret or Chris (depending on who your adviser is).

Meeting time: Mondays 12-1:30

Location: BioPharmacy 3rd floor fish bowl (PBB 303)

If you have other ideas for things worth discussing (especially relating to professional development), please talk to Margaret or Chris. Past topics that we have discussed include: how to put together a CV for grad schools/job applications, ethics in research, how to write proposals, the mechanics of managing research funds, etc., etc.

Graduate students can sign up to present by logging in to EEBedia and just editing this page. Undergraduates should talk to Margaret or Chris.

If there is a published paper to read, please put in a link to it. Note, that the actual papers probably will not be accessible unless you are on a computer connected to the UConn network (you can connect from any computer using uconn vpn and your netID).

If the date you want is already taken and it says in the notes that it is OK to switch to another date, go ahead and do so (but don't switch someone to a date when they say they will not be there .. and double-check with them that the switch is OK).
