Tips for Establishing & Maintaining a Successful Laboratory

Establishing a new laboratory can be a daunting task, as can maintaining a successful lab during the ups and downs of one’s career.

In this webinar Dr. Corbett will share tips and lessons learned during his many years of running a productive basic science laboratory distributed over 3 different academic institutions, including a 10-year stint as the Scientific Director of a national (Canadian) Stroke Recovery Research Network.

Much of the information will apply equally well to both clinical and basic research.  Discussion topics include: how to select and manage laboratory staff and trainees, how to create a productive, stimulating and enjoyable lab environment, how to get the most out of lab meetings, dealing with problematic personnel, and managing time wisely.
