The Lab Leadership and Management Best Practices Checklist is a tool for Principal Investigators who are responsible for managing lab operations and leading research staff. The checklist guides these investigators to identify areas of strength and opportunities for improvement and helps them establish effective professional habits to support research excellence and integrity.
The SMART Approach provides guidelines for professional decision making, with sample reflection questions to help researchers examine their situation and make decisions that are ethical and effective in achieving their research goals.
These materials were developed by P.I. Program faculty based on extensive research, years of experience running the P.I Program, and findings from the Research Exemplar project.
We hope you will find these resources helpful in supporting your own professional development.
