  • Dr Giulia Bonetto
    Studies of neural circuit plasticity focus almost exclusively on functional and structural changes of neuronal synapses. In recent years, however, myelin plasticity has emerged as a potential modulator of neuronal networks. Indeed, myelination of ...
  • Robin Franklin Professor Robin Franklin
    Robin Franklin is Professor of Stem Cell Medicine at the Wellcome Trust-MRC Cambridge Stem Cell Institute. His lab works on the mechanisms of CNS regeneration with a particular focus on remyelination, an adult stem/precursor cell-mediated process ...
  • 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 Sybil Stacpoole
    I am currently a neurology registrar, having completed a PhD working with neural precursor cells derived from human embryonic stem cells. I studied the pathways involved in directing neural precursor cells into oligodendrocytes, and investigated...
  • 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...
  • 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...
