Dr. Sandlers is assistant director of the Biochemical Genetics Laboratory at Kennedy Krieger Institute and a research associate in pediatrics at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.
Dr. Sandlers received her doctorate degree in chemistry from the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology. She completed a post-doctoral fellowship in nutritional biochemistry at Case Western Reserve University. Dr. Sandlers has been with the Kennedy Krieger Institute since 2009. She is a member of the American Society of Mass Spectrometry and the Society For Inherited Metabolic Disorders.
Dr. Sandlers' research is focused on understanding biochemical abnormalities underlying different metabolic conditions, especially inborn errors of metabolism and mitochondrial disorders. Dr. Sandlers research involves GC-MS, LC-MS, and tandem mass spectrometry techniques for development of novel analytical methodologies to facilitate early diagnosis of different metabolic disorders.
