Deborah Nguyen, PhD
Dr. Nguyen has spent more than a decade focusing on drug discovery and development. During her tenure with the Genomics Institute of the Novartis Research Foundation (GNF), she gained significant experience in all phases of the drug discovery process from identifying new targets to drug candidate selection. Dr. Nguyen then joined the rapidly growing Organovo team as Senior Director of R&D, with the goal of using the company’s proprietary bioprinting platform to create more predictive preclinical tissue models. The technology has the potential to decrease the costs and increase the safety and efficacy of new drugs, as well as enabling clinical rescue of organ deficiency. Dr. Nguyen received her PhD in Pharmacology from the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.
