Biography

Associate Professor Robert Andrews

Robert is an Associate Professor at the Australian Centre for Blood Diseases (ACBD), within the Central Clinical School, located at the Alfred Research & Education Precinct (AMREP).

Associate Professor Robert Andrews has in excess of 200 publications on platelet receptors, snake toxins, drug targets, and clinical defects. Current research focuses on molecular and cellular regulation of platelet receptor expression and metalloproteinase-mediated shedding, with broader implications and significance beyond haemostasis, thrombosis and coagulation, to inflammation, immune system and cancers. He is a current member of the American Society of Hematology (ASH), the International Society on Thrombosis & Haemostasis (ISTH), the Australian Vascular Biology Society (AVBS), the Thrombosis & Haemostasis Society of Australia and New Zealand (THANZ), and the Asian-Pacific Society of Thrombosis & Hemostasis (APSTH). He has served as Secretary (2000-2001), as a member of the Education Committee (2009-2014) and as President (2014-2016) of the Australian Vascular Biology Society, Section Editor for the international journal Thrombosis and Haemostasis (2009-2018), and is a member of the Research Advisory Committee of the Australian Red Cross Blood Service (2008-ongoing). He was appointed Associate Editor of Blood in 2019.

 

Research interests

Current research involves translation of laboratory-based studies of platelet receptors to analysis of clinical samples from patients with atherothrombotic disease, coagulopathy, cancer, autoimmune thrombocytopenia or other immunological or haematological defects.

Supervision interests

Current projects involve analysis of platelet receptors, snake toxins, drug targets, and clinical defects.
