2018 Meeting
2018 Agenda
Previous Meetings


The purpose of MWACD is to foster closer interactions among core facilities and to sponsor conferences of research core facility directors. We became the first official chapter of the Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities (ABRF), and we cooperate with the ABRF in our activities. Membership in the ABRF is encouraged, however it is not a requirement for attending MWACD meetings. Please visit the ABRF web site to see the many benefits including numerous technology study groups, discussion forums, and an exciting annual meeting.

We are now planning our 9th annual directors conference (MWACD 2018, in Cleveland OH). The goal of the conference is to provide an opportunity for networking among life science core directors and managers, for core directors to interact with colleagues, to share technical advice and to discuss the continuing challenges associated with the operation of shared research resources and technologies. The organization and meetings are not intended to be exclusively confined to the Midwest region: all core directors, core staff, and core organization managers are encouraged to attend the meeting.
