Andy completed his PhD with Derryck Shewan at the University of Aberdeen, working on intracellular signalling pathways that mediate neuronal axon growth and guidance. He then went on to complete a postdoc with Peer Wulff and Bill Wisden  looking at the role of parvalbumin-positive interneurons of the hippocampus and prefrontal cortex in spatial memory and developed viral tools for manipulating neural circuits.  Andy then moved to New York for a postdoc with Tom Jessell at Columbia University where he started working on the vestibular system and the role of the lateral vestibular nucleus in postural control.  

The Murray lab was established at the Sainsbury Wellcome Centre in 2016. The lab is interested in the neural circuits that underlie movement and focusses on the vestibular system in order to understand how the brain uses sensory information to modify ongoing motor actions.
