Dr. Fuller was a Cardiovascular Bioengineering Training Program T-32 Fellow and collaborated with interdisciplinary research teams at the University of Pittsburgh Vascular Medicine Institute and the UPMC Heart and Vascular Institute. In this role,  Haley assisted with the engineering of organ-on-a-chip devices to understand and treat cardiovascular pathogenesis. She used these systems to evaluate drug-laden microrobot localization and drug release efficacy as a demonstration of microrobots as targeted drug delivery systems.

A pivotal point in Dr. Fuller’s research career was a stint as a bioprocess engineer at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID), where she was instrumental in conceptualizing DoE and high-throughput experimental approaches for vaccine candidate purification process optimization. Her efforts resulted in the development of clinical manufacturing processes, a high-throughput resin screen, and data generation for peer-reviewed scientific manuscripts.

In her spare time, Haley merges her passions for problem-solving and adventure by planning hiking trips with friends, teaching her dog new tricks, and partaking in several active hobbies throughout the year.

David Link, MBA, CRS CEO and Chief Quality and Regulatory Officer, states, “Dr. Fuller is an up and coming bioengineer and science leader with real-world innovative and governmental experience that substantiates her critical problem-solving talents for our clients’ toughest problems.”

“Haley is an exceptional talent who deserves a place in life sciences leadership roles, and we look forward to her growth in this arena,” adds Alethea Wieland, President of CRS.
