The WiSE Journal Club is a new (as of January 2018) initiative as part of our In-House Education pillar. These bi-monthly meetings are open to all CSHL scientists-in-training (technicians, graduate students, post docs). The goal of these meetings is to promote the application of scientific scrutiny to peer-reviewed literature on gender disparities. Discussions are led by a WiSE board representative, volunteer from the greater WiSE community or a guest speaker.
