Muscle Club

PMI Muscle Club is a forum for PMI faculty, fellows, and trainees to present hour-long seminars on their research-in-progress or results from the current scientific research. This group is focused on muscle biology and muscle disease, and it is a key activity of our NIH-sponsored training program. The environment is friendly and supportive, and it provides trainees with the opportunity to critically analyze current research while practicing public speaking. All members of the Penn community are invited to attend, discuss, and present! Lunch is provided.
