Lab Meeting Schedule

The Adams lab gathers once or twice a week for an hour or so, during which we dissect primary research articles in a journal club format, students present their recent experimental data to the group, and/or team-based experimental plans are discussed.

Spring 2023 Lab Meetings – Fridays, 2:00pm-3:30pm
