Discoveries. Breakthroughs. New Understandings. They are all rooted in education. A young student is sitting in her biology class this afternoon; she has the potential to work in a Coriell laboratory.
This is why we invest so much time to several initiatives that support scientific education. From our Science Fair which recently celebrated its 30th year, to our workshops in cell culture, and soon, our strong partnership with Cooper Medical School of Rowan University, Coriell is committed to supporting and advancing students on their academic journeys.
Summer Experience for Students
Coriell Institute invites motivated students to participate in a one-month summer program that provides insight into the workings of a research institute. [ Learn More ]
For more than 30 years, Coriell Institute has hosted its Annual Tri-County Science Fair, showcasing the very best of South Jersey’s science programs. Students in grades 6 through 12 who attend schools in Burlington, Camden, or Gloucester counties participate each year. [ Learn More ]
In a variety of ways, we open our doors at Coriell Institute to our regions students and others who are interested in our work. [ Learn More ]
Cell Culture Courses
Coriell Institute is pleased to offer hands-on training opportunities for new users of cell culture and specialty review courses for more experienced researchers. [ Learn More ]
Coriell is excited to welcome the Cooper Medical School of Rowan University. Coriell faculty will contribute to the curriculum by teaching genomics and genetics. [ Learn More ]
Giving to Coriell
As a non-profit institute, Coriell is fortunate to be engaged in several federally-funded awards. However, we rely on private philanthropy for our more cutting-edge, independent research. Thank you for supporting science!
