A Message from Michael Christman, PhD

president_michaelOur Institute was founded on the idea that advances in scientific research translate into advances in human health. Today, Coriell is exploring the promise of genome informed medicine, innovating advances in pre-clinical discovery, and supporting significant research around the world.

Our mission to understand human genetic disease is being pursued on several fronts. The Coriell Personalized Medicine Collaborative® (CPMC®) research study is seeking to understand the usefulness of genetic information in clinical care. We are also building upon our history in cell biology by playing an important role in induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) research. And, Coriell’s Biobank manages the world’s most diverse collection of cell lines, DNA, and other biomaterials gathered and distributed for use by the international biomedical research community.

At Coriell, we approach each day with an entrepreneurial energy and confront challenges with agility and focus. Staff and scientists collaborate on ideas that support our shared vision. By taking these scientific ideas and turning them into medical advances, Coriell’s innovation today is a testament to its pioneering past. More importantly, Coriell’s innovation today is a commitment to your future.
