Diseases such as multiple sclerosis, Alzheimers disease but also viral infections are accompanied by a loss of white matter (myelin). This project will use human brain organoid models to investigate how oligodendrocytes, astrocytes, and microglia interact to mediate myelination and remyelination following injury.

For those interested in: Stem cell ageing and regenerative engineering
