The purpose of the Southeastern Association of Shared Resources (SEASR, pronounced “Caesar”) is to provide a regional forum for core directors, managers, scientists, and technical staff to meet, discuss and collaborate on the many common issues that face us. The topic areas include, but are not limited to, facility management, efficient laboratory practices, biotechnology advances and applications, federal and financial oversight, emerging issues facing cores, etc.
As an official Chapter of the Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities (ABRF), we cooperate with ABRF in our activities. Membership in the ABRF is encouraged; however it is NOT a requirement for attending SEASR meetings or participation in the SEASR organization. Please visit the ABRF web site to see the many benefits including numerous technology study groups, discussion forums, and an exciting annual meeting.
