Mid-Atlantic Directors and Staff of Scientific Cores (MAD SSCi)

The Mid-Atlantic Directors and Staff of Scientific Cores (MAD SSCi) is pleased to announce that registration is now open for the inaugural annual meeting, June 12-14, 2013. The cost for the two day event is $105, and includes admission to all meeting sessions, attendance at optional satellite workshops, and admittance to the opening social and Thursday's poster session. Additionally, registration covers breakfast and lunch on Thursday and Friday, and refreshments at the opening social and the poster session.

This meeting is designed to give directors and staff of core facilities or science departments with shared equipment the opportunity to network and learn from each other and from regional experts, gaining ideas and possible solutions for problems that challenge all of us.

Topics will include: Imaging, Epigenomics, Microarrays, NextGen Sequencing, Metabolomics, Quality Control, Core Management, LIMS, IT Infrastructure, and a view from the top, featuring a discussion of the utility and challenges of core facilities by University administration.

Pre-conference satellite workshops will be available at no additional charge for some practical, vendor-specific training.

Participants are encouraged to submit abstracts to present during the poster session on Thursday, June 13th. This offers an excellent opportunity to network with fellow core facility staff.

The meeting will be hosted by the Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research at their new Advanced Technology Research Facility (ATRF) in Frederick, MD. Tours of the ATRF's core facilities will be offered. Tours will highlight the Imaging, Nanotechnology, Genomics, Proteomics and Biopharmaceutical Development Program laboratories.

Please plan now to join MAD SSCi for this exciting event. The daily agenda, travel and registration information may be found at http://madssci.my.abrf.org.

Registration is open to all academic and government Core Facility directors and staff. MAD SSCi is a chapter of the Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities (ABRF). Not a member of ABRF? Join here.
