|Shared Resource Laboratories (SRLs)|
SRLs are a foundation for our members in many universities, foundations, government departments, research centers, and corporations. This group of highly talented individuals faces tremendous challenges as they maintain the most sophisticated technologies
available in cell biology today.
The term “Shared Resource Lab” (SRL) was adopted over the use of the term “Core Lab” to better define the role of shared instrumentation labs as a scientific partnership with researchers within an institution.
Below are some of ISAC’s resources, programs, and events that will be of particular value to those coming from a SRL background:
Career Advancement and Jobs:
ISAC has introduced a number of programs and services to better serve its members who are SRL managers and staff. We have expanded our educational offerings on SRL management at CYTO and on CYTO U.
We launched the SRL Emerging Leaders Program in 2014 and currently offer SRL junior staff travel awards, reduced CYTO registration fees for junior staff, and reduced-fee membership. Having leaders and technical support staff participate in membership
of ISAC is an important way to assist your group.
