Lab of the Future | Where We Should be Heading with Olga Seltser, M.E.
Welcome to another installment of our series focused on the lab of the future! In our previous episodes, we laid out the foundation of what the lab of the future is and how this initiative can advance research. Now, we're setting our sights on identifying where we should be heading with the lab of the future to get closer to making the concept a reality.
Our guest is Olga Seltser, M.E., senior director of automation at Laronde & Harbinger Health, an experienced automation engineer with a demonstrated history of working in the biotechnology industry. Olga shares her perspective on the opportunities to advance laboratory automation to make progress toward the lab of the future.
