Andrea Morandi is Associate Professor of Biochemistry at the University of Florence.
He studied Biotechnology (BSc) and Medical Biotechnology (MSc) at the University of Florence and gained BSc in 2004 and MSc in 2006 both with honors, after a period of research on MAPK signaling in liquid and solid cancers. Immediately after the MSc, Andrea started a PhD on the role of Tyrosine Kinase Receptors in breast cancer.
In 2007, he moved to the Institute of Cancer Research in London in the laboratory of Prof Clare Isacke where he investigated, first as visiting PhD student and then as Worldwide Cancer Research supported postdoctoral fellow, the role of the tyrosine kinase receptor RET in response and resistance to endocrine therapy in breast cancer.
In 2013, Andrea was awarded a Fondazione Italiana per la Ricerca sul Cancro Fellowship and returned to Florence.
In 2018 became Faculty at the University of Florence.
