Improving remyelination for spinal cord injury: Arthur Warrington, Ph.D.

By Jen Schutz Jen Schutz (@jenniferschutz)

Mayo Clinic researchers are probing potential ways to unleash the human body’s ability to heal neurological disorders like spinal cord injuries or multiple sclerosis. Myelin is the protective covering that surrounds nerve fibers in the brain, optic nerves and spinal cord. Demyelination, or injury to the myelin, slows electrical signals between brain cells, resulting in […]

Molecular Mechanisms of Myelin Regeneration

By centerforregmedmc centerforregmedmc (@centerforregmedmc)

Multiple sclerosis and other diseases attack the myelin, a sheath that insulates the nerves. Mi-Hyeon Jang, Ph.D., is investigating the underlying molecular mechanisms of myelin regeneration in an effort to develop a therapy to help patients. Dr. Jang is a research grant recipient from Regenerative Medicine Minnesota. She is Assistant Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and […]
