Virtual Journal Club - Data Science


Chair: Wade Trappe, Ph.D., Associate Director - WINLAB, Rutgers University

We value discussion on forefront topics that engage thought leaders in our region and abroad. As a part of this focus, we have established a Virtual Journal Club - Data Science as a platform for initiating these discussions. This group will gather 2-3 times a year to review current topics in the field while sharing insights and challenges with peers. 

Although this group is focused on Data Science, we certainly value all disciplines supporting biotechnology and plan to establish other focus areas as our community grows. If you would like to chair a Virtual Journal Club with a different focus, reach out and lets chat!
