Journal Clubs  

Journal Club meetings where research in one of the areas studied within the DTC is discussed are arranged to happen regularly during the academic year. All students are expected to attend at least one of these meetings. DTC students and academics can propose new journal clubs. 

Please contact us if you'd like to make a suggestion. A small budget for snacks and drinks at the journal club meetings is available. Details can be found on the Events page of the DTC website and are also announced via email.
