Market Overview

Driving Innovation Through Effective Research Strategies and Technological Change

Laboratory R&D professionals across the globe face numerous challenges while striving to play a key role in significant advancements in research that improve our nation. Pressure is on these professionals to secure and obtain funding in a now-stabilizing economy, while devising innovative ideas and making them a reality to improve our everyday lives and futures.

The laboratory is a complex organism of workers, including technicians, scientists, engineers, supervisors, project managers, and laboratory owners. When integrated effectively, this hierarchy of responsibility is an extraordinarily effective generator of practical science, resulting in advances and innovations in many, if not all, major industries. This includes machinery, computers, chemicals, food, transportation, and healthcare. Laboratory workers must be familiar with strategies for effective research, the care and function of tools for scientific research and the efficient design and management of facilities used for R&D. Laboratory administrators must have access to the bigger picture. They need to evaluate trends and numbers so as to know where to direct research money and efforts. And program administrators must be able to manage their project teams effectively by procuring and implementing the appropriate tools for the research job.
