Three studies presented at SfN Neuroscience 2019 have shed light on the complex interplay between microglia in neuroinflammation and disease pathology in mice.
At the 21st Spinal Research Annual Network Meeting, we had the pleasure of speaking with Aileen Anderson about her talk on ‘Traumatic CNS injury and the inflammatory stem cell niche’, including the obstacles involved with tissue regeneration following injury and the how this could be overcome.
Chronic active lesions (‘smoldering’ spots) may be a hallmark for progressive forms of multiple sclerosis, a recently published study suggests.
In this interview, we spoke with Viviane Labrie about her research into the vermiform appendix as a possible contributor to Parkinson’s disease.
Whilst at the ARUK Conference 2019, we had the pleasure of speaking with Hugh Perry about neuroinflammation and Alzheimer’s disease, particularly the role of microglia in brain homeostasis.
We had the pleasure of filming a joint seminar from the Michael J Fox Foundation and Abcam on biomarkers of neuroinflammation in Parkinson’s disease. Discover more about this in our video, with timepoints for each slide included.
A new imaging study will be the first to use the GE180 ligand tracer to detect neuroinflammation in Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease brains.
Sarah Isabel Sheikh talks to Neurodegenerative Disease Management about her research into the development of neuroregenerative-based therapies for multiple sclerosis.
In this edition of NCTalks, we speak to Robyn Klein as part of our Spotlight on neuroimmunology – Robyn discusses her research, how inflammatory processes contribute to neurologic disease, and whether immunology and inflammation could be the basis of an eventual preventative treatment for neurodegenerative disease.
This Spotlight will explore every corner of neuroimmunology, looking in-depth at the history of the field, new uses for the immune system in a wealth of neurological diseases, and looking ahead at the future of this ever-expanding field.
