Bio

Dr. Andres-Martin is exploring the effect paternal age has on the incidence of complex disorders in children, such as autism, schizophrenia, congenital heart disease, and cancer. She has identified this paternal age effect (PAE) resulting in mutant sperm-forming stem cells of older fathers, where these mutant cells are in competition with normal cells. She also intends to screen for mutant reproductive cells as a preventative clinical measure. She is currently pursuing her postdoctoral studies at Weill Cornell in Dr. Marco Seandel’s lab.
