Neuroimmunology and Remyelination Laboratory
We are multi-disciplinary group straddling the fields of immunology, genetics and myelin biology, with a particular interest in the intersection of these disciplines in MS susceptibility, severity and recovery.
Our team works collaboratively to investigate questions ranging from basic biology, such as the effect of receptor tyrosine kinases on myelination by oligodendrocytes, through to translational research, developing novel therapeutic treatments for MS.
We use a variety of techniques and mouse models of MS, as well as directly studying the human disease. We have a number of projects available that are suitable for both Honours and PhD students who would like the opportunity to explore the interface of genetics, immunology and neuroscience.
