The Queen of the Freezer Farm
Our MedStar Health Research Institute associates do fascinating things. Today, I had the opportunity to visit with Marianna Gokool who has the responsibility to oversee 58 freezers holding a wide array of biospecimens. She processes incoming samples, makes sure the freezers are working properly and are inventoried and she responds to 'alarms' to prevent the loss of any specimens. Hats off to Marianna for upholding her responsibility for so many research specimens, representing years and years of work that serve as a 'bank' of enormous value for the creation of knowledge through research. Thank you!
