The Sleep and Circadian Biology Journal Club is a regular meeting
of the sleep and circadian community at Northwestern to present and discuss papers,
research and other scientific topics of interest. Those interested in participating
should email Dr. Ravi Allada,
or phone at (847) 491-2809.
The CSCB Journal Club meets Mondays at noon in Cook
(MLS) 2123 on Northwestern's Evanston Campus.
