Project Description

Investigating exosomal microRNAs as functionally relevant disease biomarkers in MS Stephanie Blandford Memorial University of Newfoundland Studentship PhD Mechanisms of Disease - Nerve Damage & Triggers of MS The project looks to identify mechanisms of cellular communication between the immune and nervous systems that causes central nervous system damage and are also useful as biomarkers to diagnose MS and differentiate between different MS subtypes.
Exploring the Clinical and Functional Significance of Altered MiR-223 Expression in Multiple Sclerosis and its Animal Models Dylan Galloway Memorial University of Newfoundland Studentship PhD Mechanisms of Disease - Repair The aims of the research project are to identify the role that a small molecule plays in demyelination and brain repair. This research will give insight into MS pathology, and may have benefit as a MS biomarker or therapeutic agent
