About Lab Manager Academy

Lab Manager Academy

Lab Manager Academy brings essential knowledge and training for lab managers together on one platform. Within the Academy, you can take individual lab management courses á la carte, enroll in a specific category of five related courses, or eventually, sign up for the full Lab Manager Certificate Program, a 20-course series. These training courses will sharpen your existing leadership and management skills and either prepare you for taking on a lab manager role, or improve your ability to succeed in your current lab manager role.

Lab Manager Academy is expected to grow and will eventually contain other important knowledge and training materials on things like safety, compliance, product training, and consulting.

Mission Statement

Lab Manager Academy provides learning tools for the training and development of laboratory managers, leaders, and staff. Delivered by industry leaders and subject matter experts, these resources cover a wide range of technical, leadership, and management topics key to any lab's success.

Lab Manager

Most laboratory managers started as bench scientists. Their training included everything they need to be great researchers; however, most scientific programs don’t cover the skills needed to effectively manage a lab. Lab Manager will address this need. We’re the only publication specifically focused on all aspects of running a lab, including ensuring your lab is meeting health and safety standards, budgeting, hiring and retaining staff, managing people, designing and furnishing your lab, and choosing the right technologies for your lab.

We provide the guidance lab managers need to run their labs like a business. Whether it’s through our Academy, print magazine, digital offerings, webinars, videos, or live events, managers can find the advice they need to be strong leaders in their labs.
