Professional Interests: Dr. Andrew is a molecular epidemiologist with research interests in genetic and environmental factor interactions and their impact on cancer risk or prognosis. Recent projects include a large-scale investigation of SNPs and exposure factors that influence bladder cancer, and a multi-level analysis of lung tumor molecular markers in relation to exposure factors. She is currently conducting a follow-up study to assess the recurrence, progression and survival of bladder cancer cases. She has also used in vitro and in vivo techniques to investigate the impact of arsenic exposure and DNA repair SNPs on DNA repair expression, function, and bladder cancer risk.

The ultimate goal of this research is to develop profiles of molecular diagnostic markers and patient characteristics that can be used to target optimal therapeutic approaches for specific groups of patients. The hope is that knowledge of the genetic and environmental characteristics that influence cancer susceptibility and prognosis will impact cancer by: 1) preventing harmful exposures, 2) targeting interventions and early screening measures, and 3) guiding design and implementation of new therapeutic approaches.
