Managing a Research Operation

Managing and Mentoring the Research

While researchers at the UM Medical School are driving towards discoveries that have a positive impact on society, managing a lab on a daily basis is really like running a small business. Staff must be hired and trained. Equipment ordered. Payments dispersed and budgets balanced. These resources will prove useful in managing a lab or office.
