At UCC we are truly honored that the SEASR/ABRF association and Emory University Conference Center invited Dr. Boukli to present at the same level of renowned speakers from Emory Medical University, Baylor College of Medicine and Moffitt Cancer Center Research Institute among others. Dr. Boukli mentioned: “I feel so honored to have had the chance to present twice in this unique event. Being chosen to be part of prestigious conference faculty speakers was indeed a great privilege and honor for me and the only EB member from Puerto Rico in the history of SEASR/ABRF Association”. SEASR conference is a forum for core directors, managers and scientists to meet, discuss and collaborate on the many common issues facing core service facilities. The topic of a number of professional development, scientific, and networking sessions included, but were not limited to, facility management, efficient laboratory practices, biotechnology advances and applications, and federal and financial oversight. At UCC, we commend Dr. Boukli on putting this successful convention together and for actively participating as a speaker of two important interactive sessions.
