“The delivery of new treatments, in a timely and affordable manner is fundamental to the success of global healthcare systems but something we are increasingly failing to achieve. CASMI’s multidisciplinary approach to tackling this problem offers an exciting opportunity to develop novel strategies that bring sustainability to medical innovation.”
Andrea’s role within CASMI is to identify funding opportunities relevant to the Centre’s mission and to develop the CASMI community through facilitating strategic relationships across a range of partner organisations.
Andrea has extensive experience of grant application and award process within medical sciences and particularly enjoys working with researchers from a range of departments and institutions to develop collaborative projects.
Andrea has a degree in Biomedical Science from the University of Bradford and PhD in Biochemistry from King’s College London. During postdoctoral research in the University of Minnesota and Imperial College London, Andrea worked on a diverse range of projects including age-related macular degeneration, tuberculosis and reproductive medicine. Following a move to university administration she has been involved in both research management and UG and PG student support. Andrea has worked at Royal Holloway University of London and more recently University College London, Institute of Neurology where she has developed systems to support the grant application process and a new interdisciplinary PhD programme in neurodegeneration.
In her spare time Andrea enjoys scuba diving, tap dancing and taking the opportunity to indulge her creative side through dressmaking and baking.
