We explore the neuropathology of multiple sclerosis and other inflammatory and neurodegenerative diseases using a multidisciplinary team approach to post-mortem brain and spinal cord tissue. The aim is that the understanding derived from these studies will translate into ideas for improved treatments for living patients.
We work closely with colleagues at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics, Department of Physiology, Anatomy, and Genetics, FMRIB, and Immunology at Oxford, as well as the UK MS Tissue Bank at Imperial College, London, the MRI groups at the University of British Columbia and University College London, and Genetics and Genomics Sciences at Mount Sinai, New York.
