Fritz Kagerer wins the poster prize at the Wings for Life Scientific Meeting 2023.
Klaus Faber Initiative for Progressive MS prolonged at the Institute of Clinical Neuroimmunology
May 2023 – Fritz Kagerer (Bareyre Lab) wins the poster prize at the Wings for Life Scientific Meeting 2023 on the role of microglia cells in shaping new circuits following spinal cord injury, Congrats Fritz!
April 2023 – The Klaus Faber foundation has prolonged their funding for a research initiative at the Institute of Clinical Neuroimmunology that aims to uncover disease driving mechanisms in progressive multiple sclerosis patients.
Remyelination by surviving oligodendrocytes is inefficient in the inflamed mammalian cortex
New insights into effector functions of autoantibodies to myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein
April 2023 – In multiple sclerosis immune-mediated myelin loss can be partially reversed by remyelination. Here the Kerschensteiner lab and the Misgeld lab at TUM investigate if and how mature oligodendrocytes that survive in the lesion area in both MS patients and models can contribute to the...
March 2023 - Autoantibodies against myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (MOG) define a new disease entity, MOG-antibody-associated disease (MOGAD) for which no therapy has yet been approved. MOG-Abs from patients are pathogenic, but precise effector mechanisms are unclear. Here...
