Dr Andrews initially trained as a biologist and then went on to study the damaging effects of radiation in bacteria, for her PhD project.  This was followed by the award of a Royal Society European Fellowship, which allowed her to continue these studies under the supervision of Prof Ulrich Hagen at the GSF in Munich, Germany.  While in Germany she worked primarily on yeast cultures and began to explore the molecular aspects of DNA repair.  On returning to the UK in 1983, she became a part of the UK Protein Engineering Group and then developed collaborations with Prof Gordon Roberts (Leicester University) for NMR studies and with Prof. Steve Benkovic (Penn State, USA) for enzyme kinetic studies of dihydrofolate reductase.   She also spent 6 months as a visiting scientist at Penn State, before returning to the UK to take up the post of lecturer at the University of Manchester in 1988.
