Reading Scientific Manuscripts
Friday, October 16th from 4:00-5:00 pm
The Medical Laboratory Science Professional Club (MLSPC) is excited to announce the kickoff of an undergraduate journal club with our first lecture by Dr. Diana Wilkins, PhD., M.S., MT(ASCP) about breaking down and reading scientific manuscripts. Dr. Wilkins is the Division Chief for the Medical Laboratory Science and the Biomedical Science graduate programs. We are fortunate for the chance to learn from her and will meet via Zoom Friday, October 16th from 4:00-5:00 pm. Following this lecture series, the MLSPC will meet every quarter to review and discuss literature relating to medical laboratory science. This is a great opportunity for undergraduate science majors to practice reading and evaluating primary literature and will greatly benefit not only those who plan to continue onto graduate or professional degree programs but for anyone who will be working as a professional Medical Laboratory Scientist.
