Personal profile


Andrew Bergemann serves as the Molecules & Cells course director.

Andrew grew up in Melbourne, Australia, and completed both his undergraduate and postgraduate studies at the University of Melbourne. After graduating, Andrew completed two post-doctoral fellowships, the first at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine researching cellular replication, the second at Harvard Medical School researching neural development. Andrew then returned to Mount Sinai to join its faculty, where he continued his studies of neural development and congenital birth defects for fourteen years.

In 2010, Andrew moved to the new medical school at Hofstra University, where he was co-course director of two of its inaugural first year courses. He has now moved to the Dell Medical School, where he is very excited about opportunities to remake both medical education and healthcare delivery systems.

In his spare time, Andrew enjoys hiking and bird watching with his wife and daughter. He also plans to become involved in a Blackland Prairie restoration project in the near
