MD-PhD Student

Faculty of Medicine


Andy is an MD/PhD student at the Hancock Lab in the University of British Columbia. He is interested in the immune dysfunction seen in sepsis patients and sepsis survivors. Immunosuppression is a common consequence of sepsis and can lead to readmission to the hospital and late death, so Andy's interests are in determining why this process occurs for such an extended period of time. Understanding this process may lead to new ways to prevent and reverse this phenomenon.
