Center for Energy Balance Journal Club

Transdisciplinary Energy Balance Journal Club is open to all!

Our journal club meets the third Thursday of every month from 12-1 p.m. to discuss breaking state-of-the-science research related to Energy Balance. The club brings researchers from multiple disciplines together to examine a different energy balance-related topic each month. We intend to highlight the translational and trans-disciplinary nature of energy balance research and promote communication between interested researchers. 

Regular Moderators: Ann Klopp, Susan Schembre, and Rosemarie Schmandt

A healthy lunch will be provided to the first 25 attendees!
