Many laboratory managers started as bench scientists. While their training includes all they need to be great researchers, most scientific programs don’t cover the skills needed to effectively manage a lab. Lab Manager’s content, including a print magazine, digital offerings, webinars, videos, events, and the Lab Manager Academy offers tips, strategies, and insight to enable readers to be strong leaders in their labs.
