July 28th saw us run the third Journal Club, where we discussed a recent research publication. Journal Club is a monthly event livestreamed to our Facebook page and runs thanks to the support of our patrons – The Lifespan Heroes.

Unfortunately, we had some technical issues with this stream and could not broadcast it live as we usually do, so we recorded the show offline. In this episode we discuss the following paper:

Fulcher, L. J., Hutchinson, L. D., Macartney, T. J., Turnbull, C., & Sapkota, G. P. (2017). Targeting endogenous proteins for degradation through the affinity-directed protein missile system. Open Biology, 7(5), 170066.

We will be announcing the August Journal Club subject and date/time shortly. Thanks once again to the Lifespan Heroes for helping to make this possible.

    These videos are interesting to a biology window licker such as myself, but I don’t know if they will ever reach a wider audience.

    Any chance of producing a Youreka science style drawn video about AdPROM? e.g.

    Or do these videos take much more time and resources than I think? I did once have to make a video for a undergrad group project, which took a lot of time, but a lot of that was on the research itself and the setup.

      Jim, Journal Club is a technical and scientific club and its aimed at the biology window lickers as you so put it :)

      We are hoping to produce other video content in due course but Journal Club is absolutely for the hardcore.
