Using her uncle and his disease, Kacey walks us through the "old way", and the "new way" of drug development to help the human condition.

She effectively bridges two worlds, hers in tissue engineering, and the rest of us who are trying to learn, how this amazing field can help with personalized medicine.

Kacey attended Columbia University where she received her M.Sc. and Ph.D in Biomedical Engineering.

Her graduate studies were with Dr. Gordana Vunjak-Novakovic, and she now works with “human on a chip models “ for drug screening and disease modelling.

In addition to working with the Womensphere Foundation Kacey also spends time mentoring and inspiring young women to pursue STEM related fields.
