Professor Ruth Andrew

Personal Chair of Pharmaceutical Endocrinology


My research interests are in steroid biochemistry and applied mass spectrometry. I study glucocorticoids and their actions on fuel metabolsim and inflammation. I have a particular interest in 5alpha-reduced glucocorticoids as potential dissociated glucorticoid receptor modulators. My other area is in the application of mass spectrometry to enable tracking of steroid metabolism, using stable-isotope tracers and also advanced methods of MS detection e.g. imaging.
