CHICAGO – The Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening (SLAS) announced the formation of its Americas Regional Council. Made up of seven life science research and development professionals, representing both technology users and providers, this Council is chartered to provide leadership and guidance to the Society’s activities and operations in the Americas.
The members of the inaugural SLAS Americas Regional Council include:
- Tyler Aldredge, Quintiles Transnational
- John Thomas Bradshaw, Artel
- Hansjoerg Haas, Thermo Scientific
- Catherine Klapperich, Boston University
- Craig Schulz, Amgen
- Sara Thrall, GlaxoSmithKline

In concert with councils from Europe and Asia, SLAS now has active regional leadership councils on three continents. Each of these councils is charged with representing the needs of local members and professionals with a vested interest in the society. Maintaining local volunteer leadership, along with a global Board of Directors, ensures SLAS remains attuned to local markets, cultures and member needs so that the society can successfully deliver on its mission regardless of where a member resides or works.
