Laura Andres-Martin, PhD
Research Investigator at NYSCF
2015 NYSCF – Druckenmiller Fellow Alumna
PhD, University of Salamanca, Spain
Dr. Andres-Martin received her PhD from the University of Salamanca in Spain, studying tyrosine kinase receptor signaling in cancer and rare diseases. She then served as a postdoc at Weill Cornell Medicine, focusing on tyrosine kinase receptor signaling in neurodegenerative disorders and stem cell biology. In 2015, she received the New York Stem Cell Foundation Drunckenmiller fellowship, which supported her research examining the mechanism-driving stem cell competition in the paternal germline and its contribution to rare diseases, neurodevelopmental disorders, and cancer. As a senior staff scientist in oncology at NYSCF, she will be using organoids as a platform for developing diagnostics, performing genomic screenings, and discovering new therapeutics.
