Exploring inhibitory neuron-secreted chemokines as a novel remyelination therapy – Post-doc or student position, Voronova lab, U Alberta

Neural precursor cells in adult mammalian brain, such as subventricular zone (SVZ) neural stem cells and oligodendrocyte precursors in brain parenchyma, form oligodendrocytes throughout life. The purpose of oligodendrocytes is to produce myelin, an insulating material that performs vital functions in efficient neural information transmission and constitutes the brain white matter. Demyelinating disorders occur when…

Graduate Student/Postdoctoral Positions in Cellular Neuroscience – Bowie lab, McGill University
