Improving Repair In Demyelinating Disease

Grant number: 1020735 | Funding period: 2012 - 2015



Multiple Sclerosis is the most common neurodegenerative disease affecting young adults. It is a disease that kills myelin cells, which are necessary support cells for neurons and are critical for their function. This research investigates the role that the signal transduction of bone morphogenic protein plays in myelin cell production and myelin repair. Our aim is to identify regenerative therapeutics for Multiple Sclerosis.
