Dr. Sandell received her undergraduate degree from Princeton University and her doctorate in Neuroscience from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She completed postdoctoral training at the Massachusetts General Hospital and joined the Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology in 1991. The students in Dr. Sandell’s laboratory study anatomical remodeling in retinal degeneration, particularly retinitis pigmentosa. Her research is funded by the NIH. From 1991-2009 Dr. Sandell taught in a variety of courses for medical students and graduate students. She is the 2001 recipient of the Stanley L. Robbins Award for Excellence in Teaching at Boston Medical Center.

In 2009 Dr. Sandell was appointed as the Associate Provost for Faculty Development (APFD) for Boston University. She divides her time between both campuses. Additional details about the APFD activities can be found at www.bu.edu/apfd.
