Molecular mechanisms underlying neuronal protection and repair following CNS injury

Scientific Conference of Friday Noon


  • Alyson Fournier, PhD
    • Professor, Dept. of Neurology and Neurosurgery, McGill University, Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital
    • Canada Research Chair in Regenerative Neuroscience

Axonal damage can occur in the adult mammalian CNS through a variety of mechanisms including acute trauma, neuroinflammatory insults or neurodegenerative diseases. A key therapeutic approach is to devise molecular strategies to promote neuroprotection and axon regeneration.   This presentation will discuss the identification and development of a family of small molecules that drive an intrinsic growth program in injured adult neurons following acute nerve trauma and of miRNAs that mediate neuroprotection in response to neuroinflammation.
