Running a lab is the ultimate goal for many early-career scientists, but building a lab that will eventually produce research is often a difficult process. Laboratories come with a host of financial needs and responsibilities. While lab apprenticeships provide training, and mentors offer invaluable advice, there are likely to remain gaps in your lab startup knowledge. 

In this one-hour and 15-minute webinar, (FREE for AAAS members; $20 for non-members you will learn from PIs who have successfully started labs and now want to help the next generation of scientists navigate the process.
