  • Kaiser Karim Muhammad Kaiser Abdul Karim
    My research involves oligodendrocytes and its progenitors which I derive from human pluripotent stem cells through forced expression of key transcription factors, a method called forward programming. My goal is to use these cells to study oligoden...
  • Dr Koby Baranes
    I am using forward reprogramming methods to generate oligodendrocytes and other glial cells from human pluripotent stem cells. The main goal of my research is to establish a model system which will allow to study myelination both in normal and in...
  • Dr Will Brown
    Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is one of the most common causes of disability in the young. It typically begins in the late 20s: 15 years later a third of patients require a walking aid and more than half are not working. Our group focuses on reducing d...
  • Dr Nick Cunniffe
    I am an Academic Clinical Lecturer in Neurology. My research is centred on the different ways of promoting and measuring remyelination in people living with multiple sclerosis; it is anticipated that through enhancing remyelination of damaged nerv...
  • James Fawcett Professor James Fawcett
    Axon regeneration in the damaged CNS: Regeneration of axons after CNS damage is blocked by several molecules in the environment and by loss of intrinsic regeneration ability, We modify the environment to make it more permissive and modify axonal ...
  • Robin Franklin Professor Robin Franklin FMedSci, FRS
    Robin Franklin is a Principal Investigator at Altos Las - Cambridge Institute having previously been Professor of Stem Cell Medicine at the Wellcome Trust-MRC Cambridge Stem Cell Institute. His lab works on the mechanisms of CNS regeneration with ...
  • Jennifer Wanyi Jia
    My research is on myelin plasticity during adulthood and how myelin dynamics may be influenced by neuronal plasticity. Oligodendrocytes in the central nervous system produce myelin, which is essential for ensuring fast signal transmission in neuro...
  • Ragnhildur Thora Karadottir Dr Ragnhildur Thora Karadottir
    My lab’s interests are neurotransmitter signalling to oligodendrocytes and their progenitor cells, in both health and disease. Oligodendrocytes produce myelin (in the CNS), which speeds the propagation of the action potential. When the myelin s...
  • Dr Mark Kotter
    My group is interested in the biology of adult CNS stem and precursor cells in the context of disease. A particular focus lies on mechanisms of CNS remyelination, a stem/precursor cell-mediated process in which new myelin sheaths are restored to d...
  • Mr Yan Ting NG
    I am a 1st year MRes + PhD student at the MS Society Cambridge Centre for Myelin Repair. I am interested in the remyelination and neuroregeneration.I hope the study in the mechanism of remyelination and neuroregeneration can provide us better solu...
  • Claudia Pama Claudia Pama
    Currently I am based at the Wellcome Trust – Medical Research Council Cambridge Stem Cell Institute in the lab of Dr Karadottir, investigating the pattern of developmental cortical myelination as well as the function of myelin in learning - under...
  • John Henry Stockley Dr John Stockley
    I am interested in using in vitro systems to model and understand complex neuron and glial interactions, particularly the interaction between oligodendrocytes, their precursors and neuronal axons for CNS repair as well as understanding memory. I a...
  • Stavros Vagionitis MSc, PhD
    Oligodendrocytes produce myelin, a lipoproteinic substance that is wrapped around neuronal axons in a life-long process called myelination. I am studying the contribution of oligodendrocytes and their precursors (OPCs) to myelin maintenance and r...
  • Chao Zhao Dr Chao Zhao
    My research focuses on mechanism of remyelination of central nervous system following demyelination in various conditions. After demyelinating injury, the system activates a repair process, which involves oligodendrocyte progenitor cells turning i...
