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!!!

    I am a member of BioCurious, why the system prompt me for 5 bucks? Is there any fee exemption for overseas participants?

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
