Lab meeting schedule

Lab meetings are generally every Thursday at 14:30 at the meeting table on the 6th floor of SAF.

The monthly schedule will incorporate 2-3 WIPs, one journal club and one presentation - see the Google calendar below for more details.

See the list of lab members to see who is involved.

Journal club format

A small group of people read and present the main findings of 4-5 papers from the past year or so around a single topic. A review can be useful to include (if available) - distribute this before the meeting so all can read.

The focus should be on breadth and knowledge transfer rather than depth and picking apart methods (or at least, not before 4pm).

We should not print and pretend to read the papers before the meeting (except the review).

Broad topic areas (choose a sub-topic for a meeting if appropriate).

  • Mosquito immunity
  • Population biology/genetics
  • Microbiomes
  • Parasitology
  • Bioinformatics
  • Techniques (less frequently)

The upcoming meeting should be coordinated via this page.

WIPs format

Work In Progress reports.

Three or four people to present with or without visual materials.


These are for mostly polished, finished projects and can be used as practice runs before conferences, vivas, etc. Please volunteer as soon as you think you may have something to present.
