- Registration Closed
About the Speaker
Andrew Filby, PhD
Director of the Newcastle University Flow Cytometry and Single Cell Technologies Shared Resource Laboratory
New Castle University
Dr. Filby is currently the director of the Newcastle University Flow Cytometry and Single Cell Technologies Shared Resource Laboratory. He also leads the “Innovation, Methodology and Application” (IMA) crosscutting research Theme in the Faculty of Medical Sciences (FMS), where he oversees about 350 members from different technology and methodology backgrounds that includes both academic and technical job families. Dr. Filby is also a director of the Newcastle University Centre of Research Excellence (NUCoRE) in Biomedical Engineering. Dr. Filby and his team have an active program of research that includes the development of novel methods for single cell analysis and evaluating new technologies. He publishes in high-impact journals such as Science and Nature and sits on several funding panels for equipment grants. He recently won the Times Higher Education (THE) “Outstanding Technician of the Year” in 2021 for his work on breaking down barriers and establishing parity of esteem for non-academic researchers.
In this webinar Dr. Filby will discuss how the “Shared Resource Laboratory” (SRL) can be a catalyst for establishing a culture of team science, inclusivity, and health research culture. He will also discuss his role as lead of the “Innovation, Methodology and Application” (IM) cross-cutting research theme within the faculty of medical sciences at Newcastle University. Dr. Filby will also address the imbalance that sometimes exists between academic and technical job families and how he has worked via the “Innovation, Methodology and Innovation” (IMA) research Theme that he leads to try and overcome this.
- How the shared resource laboratory (SRL) can be a catalyst and “rally point” for team science and a healthy research culture.
