From pediatric patient to promising researcher

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

When Delaney Liskey was 11, a mysterious temporary loss of eyesight triggered her vision for patient-driven research that integrates personal experience into scientific inquiry. She was diagnosed with pediatric onset multiple sclerosis (MS) — a rare form of the neurological disorder  in which the inflammatory system attacks the central nervous system, disrupting signals between the […]

‘Disease in a dish’ research to advance regenerative solutions for MS

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

A desire to stop the debilitating, life-changing symptoms of multiple sclerosis (MS) inspires Charles Howe, Ph.D., to take his investigation beyond standard research in the quest for regenerative therapies that protect nerves and promote healing. Dr. Howe’s team at Mayo Clinic seeks to answer whether axons — the neuronal wires that send brain signals to […]

Mayo Clinic Research Discovers a Molecular Switch for Repairing Central Nervous System Disorders

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

A molecular switch has the ability to turn on a substance in animals that repairs neurological damage in disorders such as multiple sclerosis (MS), Mayo Clinic researchers discovered. The early research in animal models could advance an already approved Food and Drug Administration therapy and also could lead to new strategies for treating diseases of […]
