CVD Epidemiology Journal Club

The Cardiovascular Epidemiology (CVD) Journal Club is a forum for scientific interaction between the cardiovascular epidemiology trainees, collaborating faculty and other students with interest in cardiovascular epidemiology. The main focus is the presentation of research being conducted by the students of the cardiovascular epidemiology training program which may take the form of practice for the overview, comprehensive, or defense milestones, preparation for conference presentations, and informal works-in-progress (WIP) presentations. In addition, we will review published articles related to cardiovascular epidemiology and methodology. This semester, the focus is on methods to use in cardiovascular epidemiology research.

Diabetes Journal Club

The purpose of the Diabetes Research Journal Club is to discuss current literature in the area of Diabetes, bringing us all up to date with current issues in the field. Each member will be asked to pick a date to briefly (5 minutes) present an article from the journal of their choice, which will be followed by group discussion. However, everyone is invited to brief the group on articles he/she may have found of interest at every meeting. 

For additional information on the Diabetes Journal Club, please contact the facilitator, Dr. Tina Costacou (costacout@edc.pitt.edu).


eBRAIN Journal Clubs

epiBRAIN Journal Club
The Epidemiology of Brain Resilience in Aging (e-BRAIN) program and the Claude D. Pepper Center at the University of Pittsburgh sponsor the epiBRAIN Journal Club, a multidisciplinary journal club to explore the application of neuroimaging methods in the context of aging and population studies, with a specific focus on advances in MRI and their neuroanatomical correlates in the aging brain. The journal club draws on expertise in epidemiology, psychiatry, psychology, rehabilitation sciences, biomedical engineering, geriatric medicine, and neuroscience.

T32 PNA Meetings
