Dr. Kasturi Haldar and Journal Club

Sept 11 , 2010 - Dr. Kasturi Haldar, Julius Nieuwland Chair of Biological Sciences and Director of the Center for Rare and Neglected Diseases.

Dr. Kasturi Haldar and the class enact a journal club discussion of a foundational paper by Yanjanin et. al, Linear clinical progression, independent of age of onset in Niemann-Pick Disease type C. Students focused on diagnostics, research tools, current therapeutic interventions, disease scores, and terminology as they practiced a first round of scoring a single clinical visit. The role of the literature in clinical-translational medicine came to life as students gained hands-on experience, exploring the broad cycle of knowledge and the research literature.

Nina Farivari (standing above) presented her group's research on an NP-C family and entertained the students questions and discussion with Dr. Haldar.
