ABRF and GenomeWeb are partnering on a series of online seminars highlighting methods, techniques, and instrumentation that support life science research.
The GenomeWeb/ABRF Webinar Series will feature eight webinar series held over the span of the next 12 months on the topics of: Genome Editing, Metagenomics, Proteomics, Core Lab/Admin Management, Imaging, and Single Cell Genomics. Content for each of the webinars is both based on and will expand on topics originating at the ABRF 2016 Annual Meeting, which was held in February in Ft. Lauderdale.
According to ABRF President, William Hendrickson, “The decision to partner with GenomeWeb provides ABRF with a unique opportunity to increase awareness of our activities and initiatives, while also providing GenomeWeb access to expanded educational and scientific content for GenomeWeb’s readership.”
The inaugural seminar, Three Lean Management Tools for the Life Science Lab, is scheduled for May 17 at 1:00 pm US Eastern Daylight Time.
This online seminar will provide a practical approach to implementing lean management tools in the life science laboratory. Unlike some management trends and tools, the scientific method is deeply engrained in lean management, making it an effective strategy for lab workflows. In this webinar, Robert Carnahan, associate professor of cancer biology at the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, outlines three simple lean techniques that his team has implemented for project management, inventory and ordering, and equipment maintenance. Attendees of this webinar will learn about specific tools to begin implementation in their own working environment.
ABRF thanks New England BioLabs for sponsoring the GenomeWeb/ABRF 2016 webinar series!
