Welcome to the Robertson Laboratory Journal Club! In these meetings, we will discuss new and old papers that are related to the research we carry out in the lab. Selected papers will focus on the following topics: experimental and computational studies of membrane protein form and function, membrane protein folding and synthesis, and the physical behavior of lipid bilayers. If you are interested in attending, please email Janice Robertson (janice.robertson@wustl.edu) to get on the email list.

Where: North Building, Conference Room 2807

When: Thursdays, 12-1 pm … bring your lunch!
