Andreea Newtson is a new faculty member at UNMC.

  • Name: Andreea Newtson, MD
  • Hometown: Chicago, Illinois
  • Current position: Assistant professor, UNMC Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology; gynecologic oncologist, Nebraska Medicine

Education:

  • MD, Rush University Medical College, Chicago

Professional and medical interests: My research has involved integrating accurate clinical information with genomic data as a way of better predicting treatment responsiveness in advanced-stage ovarian cancer. More recently, I have worked on exploring patient-derived organoids as an avatar for chemo response in advanced-stage ovarian and serous uterine carcinomas. My primary interests, however, are in providing excellent and equitable care for my patients. 

How did you fall in love with medicine: Science has always been intuitive to me, and medicine is a fantastic intersection between service and science. 

Three things people don’t know about me:

  • I am a bit of a foodie. 
  • My husband and I are a force to be reckoned with when it comes to pub trivia.
  • I am one of those people who adopted a dog during the pandemic, and he has brought me so much joy.
