Running a Great Lab: Workshops for Principal Investigators

This 8–session workshop series provides new Principal Investigators (PIs) the basic knowledge and skills needed to create a well-functioning and productive laboratory environment. Topics include: hiring great students and employees, creating a collegial climate, budgeting and purchasing, navigating the tenure process, mentoring students, and more. Two faculty members facilitate the sessions, and many guest speakers from across campus are included in the sessions. New workshop series begin each fall, and are open to PIs who have been on campus for three years or less.
