Anne Milasincic Andrews is Professor of Psychiatry & Biobehavioral Sciences and Chemistry & Biochemistry at the University of California, Los Angeles where she leads efforts in basic and translational research on anxiety and depression, at the nexus of neuroscience and nanoscience. Andrews’ interdisciplinary research team focuses on discovering, developing, and using in vivo neurotransmitter monitoring approaches to understand how the serotonin (and other) neurotransmitter systems encode emotionally important information. Dr. Andrews earned a B.S. from the Pennsylvania State University and a Ph.D. in Chemistry as a U.S. Department of Education Fellow while at the National Institute of Mental Health, where she was also a postdoctoral and senior staff fellow. Andrews is a Fellow of the American College of Neuropsychopharmacology, International Society for Serotonin Research President-Elect, and serves as Associate Editor for ACS Chemical Neuroscience. She was recently awarded an NIH Director’s Transformative Research Award to develop electronic brain biosensors.
