Paper Options

The list of papers below is provided as a guideline for the types of papers that might be relevant for your presentation. You are not limited to the primary research articles on this list. The list is provided simply to give you an idea of the kinds of subjects that could make suitable presentations for the class. Search pubmed yourself to find articles of interest to you.

Note: If you have trouble accessing your article directly, go to http://libraries.mit.edu/vera, which is MIT's collection of journals online. Try selecting "exact title" from the search pulldown menu if the name of your journal is a common word such as Science. For older articles, you need to choose the JSTOR rather than Highwire interface.

Logistics of Paper Selection

  • Once you have decided on a paper for your presentation, please email it to skalford or astachow AT mit DOT edu (according to your lab section), and also "reserve" it by putting your (initials/lab section/team color) next to the listing here.
  • For visibility, please use the following format to sign up if possible, substituting in your own initials and team color: [ANS/WF/Purple]. Thanks!
  • The same paper may be presented only once per section.

As you prepare your talk be sure to follow the specific guidelines for oral presentations in this class.

  • Please email your finished journal club presentation to the Stellar site associated with our subject no later than 1 PM on the day of your presentation. The order in which your presentations are uploaded to Stellar will determine the order of speakers.
  • Presentations will take place in room 16-336.
