Welcome to the website of the Old Road Journal Club. You will be able to find every information related to the ORJC meetings.


The Old Road Campus Journal Club (ORJC) is an informal get together session for PhD students to discuss the latest research findings in the field of biomedical research, and share work that we’ve done! The journal club has a focus on computational biology, but we also appreciate the diversity of the field and welcome anything related to genetics and genomics. Join us every other Friday at the Wellcome Centre for Human Genetics or Big Data Institute for cool science and pizza/snacks & drinks!

ORJC is a great place to meet your fellow DPhil students, talk and exchange expertise. Come to one of the meetings and see for yourself! :)

The Journal Club is presently run by Andrew and Kasia.

We have an active mailing list to which one can subscribe by sending an email with subscribe dphil-journal-club in subject line to sympa@maillist.ox.ac.uk.


Thanks to generosity of the Wellcome Trust, we will have pizza 🍕 at the lunchtime meetings and thanks to the BDI snacks 🍪 at the afternoon meetings!
