Weekly Event: Wednesdays: Virology Journal Club

The Virology Journal Club (VJC) meets on most Wednesdays at Noon in 18-211 Moos Tower during the Fall and Spring Semesters.  The VJC is led by IMV Investigator Dr. Steve Rice. The setting is informal, so it's a great time to become more comfortable speaking in front of others and leading a discussion about a specific virus research article. Click here for the current VJC schedule.
