- Andrew undertook his PhD studies at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Institute, where he developed an interest in how the cell cycle and DNA repair are involved in the development of breast cancer. In 2006, he moved to the UK to work with Steve West at the London Research Institute. During these postdoctoral studies, he published several papers on the role of DNA repair proteins in the familial cancer syndromes such as Fanconi anaemia and Bloom's Syndrome. In 2012, Andrew returned to Australia to head the Genome Stability Unit at St Vincent's Institute. His team continues to explore how defective DNA repair processes contribute to familial cancer, with a particular interest in Fanconi anemia and familial breast cancer.
