Peter Andrews is Professor of Biomedical Science at Sheffield University. His main research focuses on the biology of human embryonic stem (ES) cells, embryonal carcinoma (EC) cells and germ cell tumours, addressing the propensity of ES cells to acquire non-random genetic changes in relation to their adaptation to in vitro culture, and the mechanisms that regulate self-renewal and differentiation.
