Andrew Pask performed his undergraduate and graduate studies at La Trobe University in Melbourne, Australia. During his graduate studies in Jenny Graves laboratory, he examined the evolution of genes in the mammalian sex determination cascade, using marsupials as a model system. He received his Ph.D. degree in 1999. He then joined Professor Marilyn Renfree’s research group at the University of Melbourne, Australia where he continued to explore the evolution and molecular mechanisms regulating development of the mammalian urogenital system. He was appointed as an Associate Professor of molecular and cell biology at the University of Connecticut in 2008. His lab investigates reproductive development and disease using a diverse array of model species including marsupials, mice, and humans.
