The Mid-Atlantic Directors and Staff of Scientific Cores (MADSSCi) is the newest chapter of the Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities (ABRF), a national organization of scientists in resource and research biotechnology laboratories, with members from more than 140 core laboratories in government, academia, research, industry, and commercial settings.
The chapter’s primary goal is to provide opportunities for networking, as well as obtaining training and/or advanced technical information for core directors, managers, and staff, all in a regional setting.
Plan on attending June 2014 in Baltimore at the University of Maryland.
Topics will include a range of technologies and management.
Pre-conference satellite workshops will be available at no additional charge for some interesting, practical, vendor specific training. In addition, there will be workshops focused on staff development, including tips for writing shared instrumentation grants and how to write effective SOPs.
Registration includes admission to the opening reception to be held at the National Aquarium in Baltimore, Maryland, and feature opening remarks and a keynote lecture by Dr. Alan Shuldiner on “Core Integration Enabling Genomic Discovery and Translation to Patient Care: Vignettes from the Amish Research Clinic”. The meeting concludes Friday, June 6, 2014 following a second keynote lecture by Dr. Elaine Mardis on “The Perfect Storm: NGS and Cancer Genomics”.
