UCLA chemist and neuroscientist Professor Anne Andrews has been elected Fellow of the American College of Neuropsychopharmacology (ACNP).  

The American College of Neuropsychopharmacology (ACNP) is a professional organization of leading brain scientists. The principal functions of the College are research and education. Members are selected primarily on the basis of their original research contributions to the broad field of neuroscience.

As UCLA professor of Chemistry & Biochemistry and Psychiatry & Biobehavioral Sciences, and a Senior Research Scientist in the Hatos Center for Neuropharmacology, Andrews leads efforts in basic and translational research on anxiety and depression, and at the nexus of neuroscience and nanoscience. Her interdisciplinary research team focuses discovering, developing, and using in vivo neurotransmitter monitoring approaches to understand how the serotonin (and other) systems encode emotionally important information.  

Andrews is International Society for Serotonin Research President-Elect, and serves as Associate Editor for ACS Chemical Neuroscience. Andrews was invited to the White House for President Obama’s announcement of the BRAIN initiative, which she helped to shape. To learn more about Andrews’ research, visit her website.
