As of 2013, we have added themed group meetings in addition to lab meetings where a subset of lab members working on related areas meet. Like lab meetings, this time is used for project proposals, project updates, discussing data and journal club style paper discussions. Whereas in lab meetings, the goal is to bring everyone together from undergraduates to postdocs, the group meetings are much more specific, and the discussion more advanced and in-depth. Currently two group meetings are being held: AB meetings and UV meetings.
