Proteintech Group, the benchmark in antibodies, is inviting researchers from the US and Europe to nominate an outstanding lab manager for their 2018 Best Lab Manager Award.
Presented annually, the Best Lab Manager award aims to recognize those lab managers who go above and beyond the call of duty, rewarding the winner with a $1000 grant to support the research projects within their lab and a care package (award plaque, commemorative mug and $100 Visa gift card).
Proteintech believes recognition in the lab is key. Honouring the unsung heroes keeping the lab in check is important for both lab morale and productivity. The lab can be a chaotic place says Dr. William Olds, Proteintech Scientific Officer. Bench work is only part of a successful lab. Staying up-to-date with regulatory compliances, day-to-day budgeting, ordering, training, and more are key to sustaining quality work long term. These roles often fall onto lab managers and success in these roles does not equate to authorship on a publication, unfortunately. We want to celebrate lab managers for creating and maintaining an environment that fosters breakthrough discoveries.
The award is the 3rd annual Best Lab Manager award offered by Proteintech. Previous winners of the award include Dr. Mary Skinner, University of Michigan USA and Dr. Clare McManus University of Manchester UK who were each awarded $1000 for their outstanding work and dedication to the lab.

How to nominate a lab manager for the award
To nominate a lab manager for the award researchers must submit a 250-word summary explaining why they believe the lab manager deserves the award. 5 outstanding candidates will then be selected by the Proteintech judging panel based upon their selflessness, teaching ability, and project management skills.
Nominees and lab managers must be based in a research laboratory in a university or research institution to be eligible for the award. The deadline for nominations is November 8 and the winner will be announced on December 3.
Proteintech is an antibody and human protein manufacturer selling directly to scientists and only selling its own products to maintain the highest level of quality control leading to superior reproducibility and lot consistency. With over 2/3 of the human genome completed, we have a catalog of over 12,000 antibodies against 12,000 targets covering almost complete spectrum of research areas. We have been cited in tens of thousands of publications and provide in-house validation images in WB, IHC, IF, FC, IP, CHIP, Knock-down siRNA using our antibodies. Additionally, we provide human cell-expressed proteins that have authentic glycosylation and folding, yielding higher activity and stability over proteins from other hosts.
