Journal Club on Neurobiology
Subjects include Sortilin receptor family, memory, neuronal development, electrophysiology, animal behavior.

Time: Once a month
Venue: Skou Building, Høegh Guldbergsgade 10, 8000 Aarhus C
The journal club is open to all interested, and no registration is needed.
For more information contact: Karen Marie Juul Sørensen

Journal Club on Structural Neurobiology
Time: Approximately once a month on Wednesday 10:00-10:30. It is held after the PN lab meeting.    

Venue: Building 1870 room 816

Participants: The journal club is open to anyone interested from the DANDRITE community.
Sign up: Please sign-up yourself by selecting available slot in presentation scheme in Labbook (lab members), or by contacting Karen Bech-Pedersen.

Responsible: Poul Henning Jensen and Marina Romero-Ramos

Neurodegenerative Journal club hosted by the Romero-Ramos and the Jensen labs.  

The area of interest include papers describing clinical observations, disease models, and mechanistic investigations related to neurodegenerative diseases, in general, and more in particular those associated to protein aggregation. The main focus has been on the neurodegenerative process in Parkinson’s disease, Lewy body dementia, multiple systems atrophy and the protein alpha-synuclein. But we have slowly shifted to also reading articles  about neuro-inflammation, the immune system, gut-brain axis and related topics that attract increasing attention in the research field. Our JC will also include, when relevant, novel technical approaches applied in the field.

All are welcome to join the journal club that often have visitors from the department of clinical medicine,  AUH.

Time and place: Every third week on a Friday at 1 pm in room 1185-132 or 1115-151B. 

Contact persons are phd student Ida Hyllen Klæstrup (idahk@biomed.au.dk) and Postdoc Hjalte Gram (hjalteg@biomed.au.dk)

Responsible: Mark Denham

Stem cells and Development
Information: The aim of the journal club is to review and discuss new and significant publications in the field of stem cells and development, with a particular focus on neuroscience.

Time: Every second Tuesday at 12.00-13.00, the same weeks to the internal meetings.

Location: Skou building 1116-348A. 

Contact person: Muwan Chen (chen.muwan@dandrite.au.dk)  

Aarhus University Cryo-EM Common Interest Group

An open group for AU researchers with an interest in single-particle cryo-electron microscopy and tomography. The group organises regular meetings with the aim of exchanging knowledge about 3D reconstruction by EM techniques at AU.

The group meets every 2nd Friday (even weeks) at MBG 1872-447.

The organizers are Charlott Stock and Sara Basse Hansen.
