Best Lab manager award

Open for nominations! Proteintech is offering a $1000 award for the most outstanding lab manager


The lab can be a chaotic place. Great lab managers keep the chaos at bay and make sure that science is as efficient as possible in the lab. They are renaissance men and women in charge of budgeting, handling copious administrative responsibilities, writing grants, training new lab members, and on top of all that, making vital contributions to research. This award recognizes those lab managers who go above and beyond the call of duty.

December 3: Winner Announcement

Lab Manager hall of fame

Congratulations to the previous winners of the Best Lab Manager Award!

2017 Winner

Clare McManus

University of Manchester, UK

"Clare is simply the lab manager you wish you had in your daily work and in case of emergencies. She has always been efficient and supportive, but then has been literally amazing in keeping the lab together after the fire which destroyed the Paterson Building where most of our lab research took place, she has kept going the extra mile to find alternative solutions and then to facilitate the relocation to the new building." - Sara Valpione

2016 Winner

Mary Skinner 

University of Michigan, USA

"Mary is an outstanding lab manager. She certainly goes beyond her required duties; whether it's organizing the lab freezers or organizing the mouse colony for 8hrs on a Saturday afternoon, Mary seems to be on call 24/7. She is a single parent to a pre-teen, yet the lab is always well-stocked and in OSEH compliance. Mary never complains about the typical whining and complaining of grad students and post-docs, rather she acts as arbitrator to try to come to a compromise that will allow everyone to do their research to the best of their ability. My goal is to have my own research lab with a lab manager as capable and efficient as Mary." - William Giblin, University of Michigan
