Meet Our Board

Coriell’s Board of Trustees is an outstanding group of professionals from the fields of medicine, finance, law, business, and public service, who provide governance and leadership for the Institute. Their diverse backgrounds and experience bring new thinking as Coriell presses forward with initiatives in personalized medicine, stem cell technology, and biobanking and research services.

The Coriell Board of Trustees acts as an advisor and counselor to senior management and ultimately monitors its performance. They help to identify emerging issues and ensure that the Institute’s programs are both effective and accountable.

Board members use their social and business networks to identify and cultivate supporters of the Institute to raise funds to propel our programs and create events and opportunities that attract donors to our mission. Board members also volunteer their expertise and services to help the organization meet its goals and enhance its reach in the community.
