The JC is for all academic, clinical, and research staff, as well as research students. Intellectual exchanges are humble and open-minded. We all learn from the literature through reviews and appraisals. The JC gives a platform 1) To enhance and update understanding of key papers in the literature. 2) To practice presentations and critical appraisals, and 3) To enhance our scientific work and stimulate research ideas through critical appraisals of key papers in the literature.

The presented papers:

1. All selected published papers will be milestone or most recent papers.

2. Approximately once a month a PI will be invited to present a draft manuscript for comments and suggestions so as to improve the concepts, writing style and appeals. Discussions and contributions to enhance the manuscript during JC does not affect authorship as these are intellectual exchanges. Free contributions of thoughts, comments and suggestions to scientific work are important scholarly manners and attitudes. It is up to the corresponding author of the respective manuscript whether to invite any colleague to further work that merits authorships.
