Remarks / more information:

undefinedundefinedEric Shoubridge is a Professor in the Departments of Neurology and Neurosurgery, and Human Genetics at the Montreal Neurological Institute, McGill University. He received his PhD in Zoology from the University of British Columbia and then went on to complete post-doctoral work in biochemistry at the University of Oxford. He joined McGill’s faculty in 1985. Dr. Shoubridge is a Howard Hughes Medical Institute International Scholar and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada. 

Dr. Eric Shoubridge’s laboratory focuses on the molecular genetics and cell biology of mitochondrial encephelomyopathies, diseases that result from deficiencies in the mitochondrial respiratory chain. His lab is also developing systems to transform mammalian mitochondria to create models of the human diseases. Dr. Shoubridge is using primary patient cell cultures and animal models to investigate the molecular mechanisms underlying these diseases and to identify new nuclear gene defects.
