Personal profile


Andrew Stevenson is a postdoctoral researcher studying the effects of epigenetics on ‘normal’ and ‘scar’ human dermal fibroblasts, with the long term goal of trying to change these ‘scar’ cells back into a ‘normal’ phenotype by modulating their epigenetic status. He was born and grew up in Perth, and attended the University of Western Australia at which he studied a BSc in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, graduating with honours in 2007. He began working at the Burn Injury Research Unit as a research assistant in 2009, where he took up the offer of a PhD in 2011. Completing his PhD in 2015, and graduating in 2016, he has continued his research at the Burn Injury Research Unit


Andrew's research focuses on fibrosis, mainly in the skin, and the fibroblast cell that drives/participates in it. He is interested in the sustained scar phenotype of the scar fibroblast, as well as the contribution to wound healing and pathological fibrosis.
