SLAS Podcast Highlights Accessibility in the Lab


The Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening (SLAS) has released the latest episode of its podcast series, “Accessibility in the Lab.”

The series explores the importance of accessibility in the lab, academia, the workforce, and other applications. In the latest episode, guest Sara Siwiecki, biophysics Ph.D. candidate at Yale University, shares her expertise on accessibility needs. Siwiecki volunteers for the Yale Disability Peer Mentorship Program and the Yale Graduate Student Disability Alliance.

The episode covers these key takeaways:

  • How and where to begin with having conversations about accessibility needs
  • How scientific events, conferences, and other activities can be more accommodating 
  • How to speak with someone who is not receptive to accessibility needs
