Kristin Fabre's Biography

Kristin Fabre, Microphysiological Systems Lead, Drug Safety & Metabolism, AstraZeneca

Dr. Fabre is part of Drug Safety and Metabolism, AstraZeneca as the Microphysiological Systems Development and Implementation Lead, working with several key AZ members to develop how to best utilize MPS technology for drug development and screening. Prior to joining AZ, she was the Scientific Program Manager for the Microphysiological Systems (or Organs-on-Chips) Initiative at NIH National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS). This role included providing oversight on all MPS cooperative agreements, including members from FDA, DARPA, NIH and several academic institutions across the United States in addition to building public-private partnerships. Dr. Fabre received her BS in Biology from the University of Wyoming, followed by her MS and PhD from Colorado State University in Cell and Molecular Biology. Prior to joining NCATS, she completed her NIH National Cancer Institute postdoctoral fellowship, emphasizing research in cancer biology, DNA repair and radiation biology. During her time at the NCI, Dr. Fabre was highly involved with training programs and was Chair of the NCI Fellows and Young Investigators Steering Committee and created the NCI Fellows Outreach Committee.

Tissue Chips (or Microphysiological Systems; MPS) are bioengineered tools being developed for predicting efficacy and toxicity of candidate compounds.  MPS development has progressed to a point where engagement of pharmaceutical and biotech industries will significantly help the continued development and implementation of these technologies.  This session will address the potential for commercializing tissue chip technology, and how industry can partner with public funding bodies to advance the field of this technology.
