Remyelination of denuded axons in patients suffering from MS remains to be addressed pharmacologically. Anthony proposes to elucidate molecular mechanisms by which the MS lesion environment inhibits oligodendrocyte precursor cell differentiation. Ultimately, shedding light on these poorly understood signaling pathways will enable us to develop novel therapeutic agents that promote remyelination in MS lesions.

Phagocytic cells are instrumental to clearance of debris in the body. One of the suspected triggers for Multiple Sclerosis is defective myelin clearance, causing subsequent inflammation and associated clinical symptoms. Tzu-Ying is studying how microglial responses to inflammation affect MS progression.
