Madeline Andrews is an Assistant Professor in the School of Biological and Health Systems Engineering. Her lab utilizes neural organoids, transplantation models and omics approaches to study human brain development and disease. She received her PhD in Neuroscience in 2017 and her BS in psychology in 2010. She completed her postdoctoral training at the University of California San Francisco where she studied human cortical development in Dr. Arnold Kriegstein’s lab.


Postdoctoral Training: University of California, San Francisco

PhD in Neuroscience: University of California, Los Angeles
