Cornell University

Fischbach Lab

We apply engineering principles to understand how tissue microenvironments influence cancer initiation, development, and therapy response.

Our Values

We value diverse ideas and identities and actively cultivate a community of inclusion and mutual respect both within our group and through interdisciplinary collaborations. This environment fosters scientific curiosity, creativity, and rigor to advance knowledge and the professional development of our lab members.
