The Bioscience Journal Club would like to invite you to our last discussion of the term:

BJC Undergraduate Research Interest

Friday, March 4 at 12 noon

TYKH 204

Please join us for pizza and a discussion on undergraduate research opportunities!

Rather than discuss a primary literature article this week, students will be discussing experiential learning opportunities (ELOs) and local undergraduate research. Bioscience covers a broad area, so students are gathering information from a variety of faculty, students, and other sources, to provide a robust discussion and resources!

BJC friends! 

We look forward to seeing everyone at our BJC meeting this Friday 02/04 at 12 noon via Zoom! We hope that you find this is a great way to see some familiar faces and be involved in fun scientific discussions with your peers. 

This week we will be discussing the publication above chosen by Jennifer McCabe:

“Tendon-bone junction healing by injectable bioactive thermosensitive hydrogel based on inspiration of tendon-derived stem cells.”
