Preprint Journal Club led by Marielle Cavrois and Nadia Roan In-Person






Peer-review is one of the most important aspects of maintaining quality and rigor in the scientific literature. During Open Access Week, UCSF is hosting two preprint journal clubs led by some or our rising-star and experienced faculty. Get some experience participating in the peer review process during Open Access Week in one of our sessions!

Feedback collected during these sessions will be posted to bioRxiv and PREreview and by participating, you can get credit for your contributions!

Preprint selection: "Systems analysis by mass cytometry identifies susceptibility of latent HIV-infected T cells to targeting of p38 and mTOR pathways", https://doi.org/10.1101/371922

Discussion Leaders


Marielle Cavrois, PhD, Editor-in-Chief of Bio-protocol, Director of the Gladstone Flow Cytometry Laboratory, and UCSF Assistant Professor
Marielle has ~20 years of academic research experience in the fields of  Virology and Immunology. She did her graduate studies in France, her post-doctoral fellowship at the Gladstone Institutes, and joined UCSF as a faculty member in 2012. As both a core director and an active investigator, she sees first-hand the need for more transparency and reproducibility in life science research. In 2016, she joined the editorial team of Bio-protocol, a free to access free to publish e-journal that curates high quality peer-reviewed protocols. Marielle believes that free access to high quality protocols will improve reproducibility and accelerate research.






Nadia Roan, PhD, Associate Professor of Urology

Nadia received her undergraduate training from the University of California Berkeley, where she graduated with an honors degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology. She then completed her PhD in the Biological and Biomedical Sciences Program at Harvard Medical School studying T cell responses to the bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis. She conducted her postdoctoral studies at the J. David Gladstone Institutes located at University of California San Francisco (UCSF), where she studied the mechanisms by which host factors in human semen influence HIV infection. As a Staff Scientist at Gladstone, she further identified and characterized novel factors from semen that influence infection outcome. As head of her own lab in the Department of Urology at UCSF, she continued to study the relationship between semen factors and HIV transmission, and pursued research to more broadly understand the molecular basis by which HIV establishes infection in mucosal tissues. Dr. Roan is currently an Associate Professor at UCSF, and the current research focus of her lab is to use single-cell analytical approaches including mass cytometry to characterize the molecular basis of cellular susceptibility to HIV infection and pathogenesis, and to identify signatures of infectious and reproductive diseases in humans.
