Mary Georger
Mary Georger
Senior Technical Associate, Histopathology Core
Research Interest: A long time URMC employee I started my career within the University managing the Department of Ophthalmology Ocular Pathology Laboratory, This laboratory was a full service Histopathology Lab offering both research and clinical diagnostic support to major Ophthalmology facilities in upstate New York. From the University I transitioned to the pharmaceutical arena, managing a Histology Core Facility for Astra Zeneca, with research focused on degenerative neurological diseases. In 2000 I returned to the University to assume a position developing and managing a Histology Core for the Center for Vascular Research Institute providing histological and molecular biology support for the center. In 2009 I switched gears and began working in Laura Calvi’s Lab within the Wilmot Cancer Institute, providing a wide variety of both histological and research support for the investigator and students within the lab. In 2018 I was offered the position to develop and manage the current Wilmot Cancer Center Histopathology Laboratory. Our core offers a full range of histology services to include tissue processing into paraffin, section cutting for both paraffin and frozen specimens, routine and special stains, as well as facilitating Immunohistochemical stain development for individual investigators.
