GenomeWeb/ABRF 2016 Webinar Series: Three Lean Management Tools for the Life Science Lab

GenomeWebinar

Director, Antibody & Protein Resource, Vanderbilt University Medical Center

This online seminar provided a practical approach to implementing lean management tools in the life science laboratory. 

Unlike some management trends and tools, the scientific method is deeply engrained in lean management, making it an effective strategy for lab workflows. 

During this webinar, Robert Carnahan, associate professor of cancer biology at the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, outlined three simple lean techniques that his team has implemented for project management, inventory and ordering, and equipment maintenance. 

Viewers of this webinar will learn about specific tools to begin implementation in their own working environment. 

About the GenomeWeb/ABRF 2016 Webinar Series: GenomeWeb has partnered with the Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities to produce a series of online seminars highlighting methods, techniques, and instrumentation that support life science research.
