Dr. Madeline Andrews is a postdoctoral scholar at the University of California San Francisco, where she studies human cortical development in Dr. Arnold Kriegstein’s laboratory. She received her BS in Psychology from the Barrett Honors College at Arizona State University, and her PhD in Neuroscience from the University of California, Los Angeles, where she studied cell fate specification and morphogen signaling in Dr. Samantha Butler’s laboratory. Her BRAIN Initiative project is focused on innovating brain organoid and transplantation-based methods to improve our understanding of how cell-cell interactions, signaling mechanisms, and metabolism regulate key processes during human cortical development. Her studies aim to increase the accuracy of human brain model systems and discover unique features of human-specific development and disease.
