Andrew Shoubridge is a neuroscientist at the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute in the final year of his PhD, enrolled in the School of Medicine, University of Adelaide. Andrew has used immunofluorescence, 3D-modelling, electrophysiology and gene replacement therapy to evaluate the influence of neuroimmune cells on synaptic morphology and function in the brain of a mouse model of Sanfilippo syndrome, a childhood-onset form of dementia. Andrew was a recipient of a Research Training Program Stipend (2017-2020) supplemented by the Commonwealth Scholarships Program for South Australia (2017-2020). He also received a Sanfilippo Children’s Foundation Top-up Scholarship (2017-2020) and was awarded the John Carew Eccles Prize for in vivo electrophysiology recordings (2018) following his acceptance into the competitive and internationally-recognised Australian Course in Advanced Neuroscience. He was also awarded three travel grants by the Australian Neuroscience Society and Adelaide Medical School to present his research across Australia during his PhD.
