Andrea Belovich, PhD
Andrea earned her Ph. D. in Pharmacology from Vanderbilt University and completed the Neuroscience Program in Substance Abuse (N-PISA) training program from the Vanderbilt Brain Institute. While at Vanderbilt, Andrea sought ways to serve her academic and local communities through lecturing and mentoring Vanderbilt students and directing research projects for undergraduate and beginning graduate students. She also developed curriculum and coursework for doctoral and undergraduate students and presented at outreach venues to educate the public about science.
Andrea has been published in several academic journals (including Nature Chemical Biology) and has presented her research at the Society for Neuroscience’s Annual Meetings and the Gordon Research Conference on Catecholamines. Andrea’s dissertation research was also supported by a Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award from the National Institutes of Health. Prior to attending Vanderbilt, she graduated summa cum laude from Barrett Honors College at Arizona State University with a B.S. degree in Biochemistry (Medicinal Chemistry). Andrea now calls the Treasure Valley her “Idahome”, and is honored to be a part of the ICOM team.
