Full course description

Course Description

The Cube Education Series consists of several modules with prerecorded lectures by JAX faculty that will be released on a weekly basis. At the conclusion of the course, Wed. 5/12/21, there will be a live session and panel discussion presented by Nadia Rosenthal. This course will be available indefinitely, to allow future cohorts of trainees and others at JAX to access the materials at will.

Learning Outcomes

This course is not designed to impart Cube expertise, but instead to provide a review of key topics that form a conceptual and practical foundation upon which The Cube project is based—topics that may position enrollees to better appreciate, understand and participate in aspects of The Cube.

Target Audience

This course is designed to meet the needs of JAX research trainees -- Postbacc Fellows, Postbacc Researchers, Graduate Students and Postdoctoral Associates -- but is open to all JAX team members.
