Andrea Bodnar, PhD
The Donald G. Comb Science Director at Gloucester Marine Genomics Institute


Andrea Bodnar is the Donald G. Comb Science Director at the Gloucester Marine Genomics Institute (GMGI). She has a PhD in Biochemistry from McMaster University in Canada and has held Scientist positions at the National University of Singapore, the Department of Cell Biology and Pharmacology at Geron Corporation, and in the Oncology Department at Hoffmann-La Roche. Andrea’s initial research interests were focused on questions related to human aging and cancer biology. In 2003, she joined the faculty at the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences and refocused her research to study long-lived marine invertebrates. Her current work uses sea urchins as models to understand the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying healthy aging and resistance to cancer. With this background at the intersection of marine biology and human health, Andrea joined the Gloucester Marine Genomics Institute as their first Science Director in 2017.
