Center for Muscle Biology

EDUCATION
Home > Meetings > Muscle Forum

Muscle Forum

The Center for Muscle Biology Forum meets every Thursday in MS505 at 11 am and is coordinated by Esther Dupont-Versteegden.

As of August 2011, University of Kentucky students can also receive one credit hour per semester for participating in the Forum. The assigned course number is RHB/PGY625. Please contact Esther Dupont-Versteegden if you have questions.

Mock Study Sections

Starting in January 2011, some Forums will take the form of mock study sections. In these sessions, three Center members will review a draft of a grant application being submitted by a Center PI. All Center members are welcome (and encouraged) to attend these events but the proceedings should remain confidential. Please do not discuss the reviews or data presented in the applications outside the Forum itself.
