This is the sixth of seven webinars in our SRL Best Practices Series
About the Presenters
Joanne Lannigan, M.S.
Joanne Lannigan has been actively involved in Flow Cytometry for over 30 years, where she has worked in clinical, industry and academic flow cytometry laboratories. She is currently the Director of the Flow Cytometry Core Facility in the School of Medicine at the University of Virginia. She has been an active member of ISAC since 1996 and served as an ISAC Council Member from 2012-2016, Chair of the Shared Resource Laboratory Task Force from 2014-2016, a member of the Shared Resource Laboratory Services Oversight Committee from 2014-2016 and Vice Chair of the Certification Advisory Committee from 2014-2016. She currently is the Chair of the SRL Content Task Force of the Education Committee as well as a member of the Cytometry Board of Certification Committee through ASCP. Ms. Lannigan’s current interests involve advancing technologies in cytometry, small particle analysis by flow cytometry, instrument evaluation and quality assurance, flow cytometry education and core management.
James Marvin has spent virtually his entire career within a Flow Cytometry shared resource setting. In 2001, James joined the bustling flow lab at the University of Chicago under the tutelage of Julie Auger and Ryan Duggan. This was the era in which cell sorters were a bit more “hands on” and a firm understanding of the underlying hardware was essential on a daily basis. Next, James moved on to Northwestern University to “pick the brain” of Dr. Charles Goolsby. In addition to the routine aspects involved in a flow core, a transition to more clinical assays was pursued during this time. Through a strong collaboration with industry as well as academic partners, significant strides were made in optimizing assays related to signal transduction analysis in normal as well as diseased bone marrow. Finally, in 2011, James uprooted from the Midwest in search of the mountains and desert of Utah where he has been the Director of the Flow Lab at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. One of the many unifying themes through each of these distinct labs was the emphasis that education and training played for both facility staff and clients.
One of the most important aspects of a well-run SRL is the operational structure of the facility. A properly managed SRL requires best practices that provide necessary oversight, strategic and fiscal management and planning, self-assessments, and external reviews for evaluating the facility’s performance. This webinar will discuss the infrastructure necessary to insure the efficient and effective operation of the SRL.
Upon completion of this webinar, you will have a greater understanding of the important operational components that need to be addressed as part of overall Best Practices of a SRL. These areas include: Management, Oversight, Performance Assessment, Annual Reports/Business Plans, Budget Development and Review, Facility Use Policy and Procedures, and communications.
