Journal Club

Journal Club

The Assembly on Microbiology, Tuberculosis and Pulmonary Infection (MTPI) invites ATS members interested in research pertaining to the pathogenesis, host response, diagnosis and management of lower respiratory tract infections to participate in our Journal Club series. The program emphasizes research addressing novel, controversial and timely issues. We host quarterly live webinar- and Twitter-based journal clubs with an emphasis on high-impact research from basic, translational, and clinical research perspectives. 

Each session features:

  • A summary of the journal article, typically by one of the article’s authors.
  • An interactive web-based platform, which allows real-time discussion both online and on the phone.  These platform allows for dynamic discussion and simultaneous questions.
  • Live Twitter discussions starting at the time of the journal club and continuing for 48 hours after the live session is complete. This allows busy clinicians and researchers an opportunity to participate, even if they cannot join during the live session. Please follow us at @ATS_MTPI.

We invite you to participate in our journal club sessions. If you have any suggestions or questions about future journal clubs please contact:
