Jeffrey Huang receives National Multiple Sclerosis Society grant


Congratulations to Prof. Jeffrey Huang for receiving a 3-yr grant from the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.  He and his research group will study the molecular signals involved in CNS remyelination.  Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune disease of the central nervous system (CNS) in which myelin membranes are destroyed through persistent inflammation.  Jeff and his research group are working to identify therapeutic strategies to repair demyelinated axons by promoting remyelination and/or protecting neurons.  These strategies are expected to limit the accumulation of clinical disability and bring disease progression to a halt.
