Andrew Hall started as an assistant professor at the Institute of Anatomy in 2013, holding a double affiliation with the Medical and Science Faculties. In 2019, he was promoted to associate professor ad personam.
The activities of his research group are focused on the development and application of advanced imaging approaches, including intravital microscopy, to elucidate dynamic cellular mechanisms of kidney diseases, with the long-term goal of developing new diagnostic and therapeutic strategies.
Andrew Hall studied physiology and medicine at the University of Cambridge, UK, graduating in 2000. After initial junior doctor posts, he specialized in nephrology. He undertook a PhD in renal physiology at the University College London (UCL), and in 2009 was appointed as a Clinical Lecturer at the UCL Centre for Nephrology. He completed his specialist training in nephrology in 2012 and has worked as a consultant (attending) nephrologist in parallel to his research work.
He receives funding from the Swiss National Science Foundation.
Since 2022 Andrew Hall is the founding director of the Zurich Kidney Center, a Competence Center of the University of Zurich, which brings together scientists and clinicians across different institutions, working together to find new ways to diagnose and treat kidney diseases.
