"Our mission in Molecular Biology is to continuously meet Coriell's historic commitment of providing the highest quality genomic material for the genetics research community."
Steven Madore, PhD, is director of molecular biology, managing an expert group of skilled technicians engaged in DNA and RNA extraction, quality control measures, biofluid processing, and mycoplasma testing. In addition, Steven is also leading the Institute's induced pluripotent stem cell and disease in a dish research initiative and is a key member of Coriell's educational outreach efforts.
Prior to joining Coriell, Steven served as manager of the Transcript Biology Group in Discovery Technologies at GlaxoSmithKline Research and Development. There he led the use of comprehensive RNA expression profiling technologies in critical support of drug discovery efforts in cancer and metabolic diseases. Previously he was the Expression Profiling Group Leader in the molecular biology department at the Parke-Davis/Pfizer Research and Development Facility in Ann Arbor, MI. Prior to this role, Steven served as a research investigator in the Dermatology Research Division at the University of Michigan Medical Center in Ann Arbor.
Steven received his undergraduate degree in microbiology from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and his doctorate in developmental and cell biology from the State University of New York at Stony Brook. Upon completing his graduate degree, Steven accepted a postdoctoral fellowship in the laboratory of Dr. Bryan Cullen at Duke University Medical Center.
