Future of Myelin Workshop

IRC Camneuroscience May2017

In May 2017, scientists from a range of research backgrounds came together for a cross-disciplinary workshop with the aim of identifying common goals in myelin research and planning collaborative research projects to increase understanding in this field.  

Advances in myelin research are keenly anticipated, with diseases including multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy and schizophrenia all linked to myelin dysfunction.  

The workshop facilitated an open and creative conversation on how myelin research could best be developed in Cambridge, with students, post-doctoral researchers and professors all sharing ideas on the best ‘next steps’ for this important field.    

This highly successful event was jointly organised by Stem Cells Cambridge and Cambridge Neuroscience, two of the University’s Interdisciplinary Research Centres (IRCs), established to tackle cross-disciplinary challenges and create a shared cross-School vision in key thematic areas.
