Current Research Projects

Our lab currently has four distinct but related projects centered around understanding the basic biology of myelin and how non-myelinating glia influence myelination in disease. These four projects focus on four topics that broadly speaking pertain to three aspects of human disease: understanding the etiology of pathology, identifying disease relevant biomarkers for diagnostics and exploring novel strategies to promote regeneration.
