Laboratory Leadership Service fellowship with the CDC
The CDC's Laboratory Leadership Service (LLS) fellowship program prepares early-career laboratory scientists to become future public health laboratory leaders. LLS focuses on developing laboratory scientists who integrate safety and quality as principal elements in all of in their work, which is vital to protecting the public's health, safety, and security.
A two-year competency-based service learning program, LLS concentrates on training fellows in laboratory quality management, the science of biosafety, and leadership — building a strong foundation for future public health laboratory leadership and management positions.
The program is aligned with CDC’s Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) to promote interdisciplinary training, applied learning, and networking between laboratory scientists and epidemiologists. The inaugural class began in July 2015.
