UT Southwestern Medical Center
AVP, Commercialization and Business Development
Claire Aldridge, Ph.D. serves as Associate Vice President for Commercialization and Business Development at UT Southwestern Medical Center. She recently rejoined UT Southwestern after eight years with Remeditex Ventures, a local biotech venture fund. Dr. Aldridge brings more than 20 years’ experience facilitating the translation of scientific discoveries into patient and commercial benefits.

Dr. Aldridge has leveraged her training as a translator, or liaison, between scientists and non- scientists, communicating effectively about the potential of science. Her roles have included technology commercialization; improving patient outcomes through quality based initiatives; working with disease-specific nonprofits; development and venture philanthropy; and biotech and life science investing through venture capital.

In addition to broadening the pipeline of commercialization opportunities for UT Southwestern discoveries, she plans to bring her science communication, commercialization and venture capital skills together with other science and civic leaders to grow and more deeply establish a biotech ecosystem in the North Texas region.

Dr. Aldridge received her Ph.D. from Duke University in the Department of Immunology and Program in Genetics, and her Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Science is from Texas A&M University.
