One representative from each location will present on behalf of their facility. This session is designed for the imaging facility personnel to share their lab’s general operational details, including their successes and challenges. The overall goal of this session is to learn from each facility’s operations in order to improve upon our own facilities and to establish rapport with those who share similar professional interests and goals.
The speaker from each location for the Facilities Session can be the Director or Manager. The Scientific Session speaker from each facility can also be the Facility Session speaker. Speakers will have 10 minutes to introduce their facility and discuss the facility’s overall workflow. The following are some topics that would be helpful to include in the facility introduction: history of the facility, available equipment, services, self-service or full-service, available analysis service or training, subsidies, oversight committee, IT support, data sharing with users, any QA/QC program, advertisement, funding for pilot projects, any in-house projects to improve methods, challenges, and successes. Any additional information that makes your facility unique or that can benefit other labs would be ideal to share.
