Journal Club

The School of Biosciences actively conduct Journal club Meet wherein the students and faculty members meet regularly to critically evaluate recent articles in the academic literature and research findings. Journal Meet is conducted every month where in the students present research papers, scientific findings in the recent research topics, facts and so on. This provides a platform to students to expose their research interest and research experience. These help make the students become more familiar with the advanced literature in the field of Biosciences. In addition, it helps improve the student’s skills of understanding and debating current topics of active interest in their field, to design research projects etc.
