Seminar – Fraser Sim, PhD – Topic: Multidisciplinary Approaches to Understanding Myelination and Demyelination

April 19 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Fraser Sim, PhD
University at Buffalo


About the Speaker: My lab investigates the molecular control of cell fate and homeostasis of resident stem and progenitor cells in the human brain. Using a combination of multicolor cell sorting techniques and whole genome analysis, we are characterizing the signaling pathways which regulate the formation and fate of human oligodendrocyte progenitor cells. We are testing the functional significance of these pathways using both pharmacological and viral methods in culture and animal-based models of myelination and demyelination.
