Lab Management Guides
Initially based on workshops co-sponsored by the Burroughs Wellcome Fund and HHMI in the early 2000’s, Making the Right Moves a collection of practical advice and experiences from seasoned biomedical investigators and includes chapters on laboratory leadership, getting funded, project management, and teaching and course design. An updated version is planned.
Excellence Everywhere is a variation of Making the Right Moves with the intent to focus on labs in developing countries.
This is an attempt to curate collections of Burroughs Wellcome Fund-supported career development resources. There is a wealth of information available to researchers and scientists through various institutions and societies.
