Want to get involved in the wider microbiology community?  Want to discuss the latest microbiology research in a friendly, welcoming environment? 

Come and join us at the Microbiology Twitter journal club, #microtwjc .

The journal club runs every other Tuesday evening at 8pm UK time and each session we discuss a different paper.  Have a look through earlier posts to get an idea of the types of papers we have covered so far and check out this page for transcripts of many of the sessions.

We are currently on the lookout for people to help us pick papers and steer sessions: no previous experience required at all.  Anyone from undergrads to professors is more than welcome to get involved.

We can give you hints and tips about Twitter if you are a Twitter newbie and if you’re new to journal clubs we will make sure there is someone more experienced on hand to help out if you need it.

The club is great fun and it’s a great way to network with both the UK and worldwide microbiology community.

If you do want to find out more please get in touch via email (, twitter (contact @_zoonotica_) or simply by commenting below. 

If you know anyone else who might be interested please point them in the direction of this page 🙂
