Dr. Anastassia Voronova: (Re)generating oligodendrocytes in the developing and degenerating brain: a neural stem cell perspective

Rudy North Lecture Theatre, Djavad Mowafaghian Centre for Brain Health 2215 Wesbrook Mall, Vancouver

Zoom option if unable to attend in person: Zoom link here (click on “Join a meeting”) Meeting ID: 91512 289258 Passcode: 289258 Objectives: 1) Neural stem cells build and regenerate the brain in part by forming oligodendrocytes, the myelinating cells of the central nervous system 2) Endogenous neural stem cells can be engaged in mouse models of neurodegenerative disorders for brain remyelination 3) Neurodegenerative disorders may have a neurodevelopmental origin, and neurodevelopmental disorders may have a neurodegenerative component.
