Meet Theresa Mathieson
Responsibility at the KTB:
Why do you do what you do? Or what brought you here?
After many years doing research at the bench level I am enjoying the challenge and responsibility of collecting and keeping the Komen Tissue Bank samples in superb condition for high quality research.
Favorite KTB story/experience?
I love to see the freezer boxes filling up with samples and knowing that maybe one of them will unlock the door to a cure. I also love to see the “shipment received in good condition” messages from researchers who have received samples.
Other passions in life:
I am passionate about my Faith and my Family, and all things Science! Other things I enjoy are: traveling, hiking in the Sierras, reading, gardening, running, and Yoga, to name just a few.
People would be surprised to know that you…
are a Master Gardener.
Ice cream or pizza?
Both…… in the same meal!
