Florey researcher Andrea Gogos


Dr Andrea Gogos is a neuroscientist specialising in psychopharmacological approaches to investigate the neural mechanisms underlying the development of neurodevelopmental disorders. She completed her PhD in 2005 at the Department of Pharmacology, University of Melbourne; her project focusing on the therapeutic potential of estrogens in pre-clinical behavioural models of schizophrenia. During her postdoctoral training fellowships, she extended her skill base by gaining valuable clinical experience when measuring sex differences in cognition in patients with psychiatric disorders.

Most recently, she has been using epidemiological approaches to investigate exposures that affect neurodevelopmental disorders. Following three significant periods of career disruption, she became head of the Hormones in Psychiatry Group in 2016.
