Daniela Andrei earned her PhD at Florida International University in Miami, Florida and after her graduation in 2006, she worked as a postdoctoral fellow for the National Institutes of Health/National Institute of Cancer at Frederick, Maryland. She joined Dominican University in River Forest in 2008 where she serves as a full Professor of Chemistry performing research in synthetic organic and medicinal chemistry. Her research work is on nitric oxide chemistry. She has been working on the synthesis of small biological active molecules known as diazeniumdiolate or NONOates with the goal of expanding the availability of primary amine diazeniumdiolates. She has published several scientific papers in different areas of organic chemistry and is an inventor of 2 U.S. patents.
