Personal profile


Andres has fully dedicated his research career to neuroscience, specially to study microglial biology, having more than 5 years of research experience in different laboratories in Barcelona, Amsterdam and Sydney. He obtained his Master’s degree in Translational Medicine from the Faculty of Medicine at University of Barcelona (Spain), where he studied the role of POMC neurons in energy balance using mice models. In 2016 he joined the Department of Endocrinology and Metabolism of the Academisch Medisch Centrum in Amsterdam, studying the role of microglia in obesity and diabetes.

In 2018 he moved to Sydney to pursue his PhD at Macquarie University joining Dr. Marco Morsch's group, studying the role of microglia-neuron interactions in neurodegeneration. He is currently establishing novel methods for the study of microglia in zebrafish, using techniques such as in vivo confocal imaging, 3D rendering and electron microscopy.

In 2019, Andres received the award for the best poster presentation at the Macquarie Neurodegeneration Meeting. Later that year, he was awarded the Magnified-Justin Yerbury Travel Scholarship to attend the 30th International Symposium on ALS/MND.
