Alban Gaultier, Ph.D. (Principal Investigator)
Anthony Fernandez-Castaneda (Neuroscience Graduate Student)
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.
A Rosen, Ph.D. (Pharmacology Graduate Student)

Andrea Merchak (Neuroscience Graduate Student)
Kacper Posyniak (Visiting Masters Student)
Kacper is a visiting masters student from Warsaw University of Life Sciences, as part of the Fulbright Biolab program. He is currently investigating the role of PKM isoforms in Th17 differentiation and setting up a model to observe chronic myelin uptake by microglia.
