Gretchen Smith

Manager, Molecular Biology

I started my career at Coriell Institute more than 20 years ago as a Molecular Biology Laboratory Technician under the direction of Dr. Lorraine Toji. I gained extensive knowledge of molecular biology techniques under her direction and was promoted to Team Lead and then Laboratory Manager.

The Molecular Biology laboratory is responsible for nucleic acid isolation and quality control. We provide the highest quality biomaterials in our state-of-the art facility utilizing robotics and liquid handling instruments for high throughput extractions and unparalleled QC analysis. As the manager, I ensure that all of our procedures are followed according to the ISO 9001:2015 standards.
