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 […]

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 […]
