Ruth Andrew's Biography

Ruth Andrew, Reader, Edinburgh University

Dr Ruth Andrew graduated as a pharmacist from the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, UK in 1989 and carried out her PhD in pharmaceutical analysis using GC-MS to study synthesis and metabolism of adrenal medullary hormones in hypertensive subjects. She gained a lectureship in the University of Edinburgh in 1994 and has progressed to Reader in Endocrinology. She specialises in understanding regulation of glucocorticoid action in metabolic and inflammatory diseases and has developed innovative tools to allow steroid metabolism to be used in vivo to study steroid flux, most recently by mass spectrometry imaging. She also is the Director of the Mass Spectrometry Core of the Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Facility; this laboratory supports a broad spectrum support for clinical researchers requiring small molecule analysis in their research programmes, including studies of toxicology, drug discovery, experimental physiology and pathology. She plays an active role in undergraduate and post-graduate teaching in Endocrine Pharmacology and sits on the Science and programme committees of the Society for Endocrinology in the UK.
