Cardio-Renal Physiology and Medicine Journal Club GBSC700

The Cardio-Renal Physiology and Medicine Journal Club explores state-of-the-art topics in vascular and renal physiology and pathophysiology. Topics are rotated monthly to provide focus on the cardiovascular and renal system, while highlighting interplay between the systems based on their underlying physiology. Students will gain insight into hypothesis testing, critical thinking skills, new paradigms for research, and cutting-edge experimental methods and models.

To critically evaluate published studies in the field of Cardio-Renal Physiology and Biology
When: Fridays at 3:00pm – 4:00pm
