Biography:

Laura Andreae read Medicine at Gonville and Caius College, University of Cambridge (Part II Neuroscience and Developmental Cell Biology) and University College London (clinical years). She trained in internal medicine and gained membership of the Royal College of Physicians, before being awarded an MRC Clinical Training Fellowship to pursue a PhD with Andrew Lumsden FRS at King’s College London in developmental neurobiology. She did her initial postdoctoral training as an MRC Career Development Fellow with Tim Bliss FRS at the National Institute for Medical Research, UK, researching neuronal plasticity in the context of learning and memory, before returning to developmental neurobiology, and King’s, to complete her postdoctoral work in the lab of Juan Burrone.
