Andrew Hagan shared his experience pursuing an international MBA program for scientists and engineers at the College of Engineers in Paris.

Strengthening Laboratory Management Toward Accreditation (SLMTA), a structured quality improvement program, teaches laboratory managers how to implement practical quality management systems in resource-limited settings using available resources.

Also essential is that all incoming students and postdocs undergo safety training that goes well beyond which form to fill out, writes John K. Encourage lab members to think through their experiments with an eye toward safety before they hit the bench—and remind them often that they need to wear their safety goggles (buying fancy ones if necessary) and other lab-safety gear.

It's essential to work hard to create a laboratory culture where safety is taken very seriously.

Two special features, "Staying Well - Safety in the Lab” and "Pregnancy and the Lab,” offer more advice and insight on safety—the latter in a very special context.

Just as important is creating a work environment where ethics is pervasive.

All researchers, and PIs in particular, should "Put Integrity High on Their To-Do List”, writes Nicholas H. Often, research integrity is about making the right choices, writes Careers contributing editor Elisabeth Pain.

Steneck, a consultant to the federal Office of Research Integrity in the U. One issue in particular that is bound to come up is authorship, so it’s important that you know the ethics of how authorship should be decided and scientific authorship conventions and accountability.

One of the ironies of a scientific career is that once scientists have been fully trained to do science—once they become really good at it—they usually have to leave the bench and become managers.

Adding to the irony is the fact that they typically receive very little management training.
