Adriana Irizarry

I am a Research Technician I for the Organoid platform at EIPM at Weill Cornell Medicine. I am responsible for processing patient tissue samples collected during biopsies and growing them into mini tumors, which are used for molecular characterization and the identification of the best treatment for the patient. Prior to joining EIPM, I worked as a medical assistant and a phlebotomist for about 3 years in various specialties. I received my BS in Biology with a double minor in Psychology and Chemistry from Manhattan College.
