Justin Andrushko

Dr. Justin Andrushko is a postdoctoral research fellow in the Brain Behaviour Laboratory at the University of British Columbia under the supervision of Professor Lara Boyd. Justin completed his PhD in the College of Kinesiology at the University of Saskatchewan where he worked with Professor Jonathan Farthing.

Justin’s previous research focused on the inter-limb transfer of unilateral motor training to the opposite untrained limb, often termed cross-education, and understanding how the brain and nervous system adapt to motor training and disuse.

Justin has held visiting researcher appointments at Deakin University in Melbourne, Australia and at the University of Oxford, England where he worked with Dr. Ashlee Hendy (Deakin) and Professor Charlotte Stagg (Oxford). For his postdoctoral research, Justin holds a CIHR Fellowship in addition to the Health Research BC Research Trainee award, and is focused on determining the role of non-primary descending motor pathways in post-stroke motor recovery in individuals with severe hemiparesis.
