SRL Emerging Leaders Program

The ISAC Shared Resource Lab (SRL) Emerging Leader Program is designed to develop the next generation of leadership in SRL operations, who will help to further enhance the field of cytometry.

This five-year program provides ISAC SRL Emerging Leaders with a complimentary membership in the Society, subscription to Cytometry Part A, and complimentary registration and partial travel funds to attend the Society's annual CYTO conference, as well as eligibility to apply for individual project funding.

In addition, ISAC SRL Emerging Leaders are given the opportunity to be an integral part of the Society through committee memberships, advisory boards, and creating educational material to further support the goals of ISAC. All SRL staff with less than five years of experience in a position in which they have held primary responsibility for the supervision or management of an SRL are eligible to apply.

Please note the application period for 2020 is not yet open.

Leaders or prospective leaders in the field of cytometry whose primary activity is scientific research are encouraged to apply to the ISAC Marylou Ingram Scholars Program. The SRL Services Oversight Committee reserves the right to forward SRL EL applications to the IMISP.
