Idea Lab (aka Journal Club)

5 - 6:30 pm

Idea Lab (aka Journal Club)

Facilitated by: Nina DiPrimio

About the Meetup:

This course/discussion club is free for members and $5 for nonmembers, and is geared towards all levels of scientific background. The purpose of this meeting is to help people learn, facilitate collaboration and spark project ideas that can be implemented at BioCurious. The first part of the meeting will focus on the discussion of one current topic in science, including important background information, related research studies and potential future applications. During the second part of the

meeting, participants are encouraged to discuss their current and potential future projects to get feedback from others in the citizen science community.

Topics for each instance of the Idea Lab will be announced closer to each meeting. If you have an idea for a topic/paper you'd like to review, let us know!!!

    My first time to the Idea Lab and I didn't have the paper that was being discussed ahead of time to read it. I did get info on how to find that info on Google Groups, so next time I'll be ready.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
