Christopher Andry
670 Albany St Biosquare III


Dr. Andry is well recognized in the field of biospecimen science. In a team-based setting at BU and BMC, he has established evidence-based protocols and standards to ensure curation and distribution of high-quality, well-annotated biospecimens. Dr. Andry has served as the PI on more than $2 million in grants and contracts to set standards for the science of biospecimen collection. A mentor for many medical and graduate students, he directs the Master of Science in Pathology Laboratory Sciences program and serves as course director, lecturer and laboratory instructor in medical, dental and graduate courses. Dr. Andry has raised the profile of BU in biobanking and provides the expertise for obtaining usable tissue samples for medical campus research faculty. He has chaired the BU Laboratory Safety committee since 2006 and directs the Cancer Tissue Archive for Precision Medicine, BU-BMC Cancer Center.
