Research Grant Awarded to Professor Robin Franklin

Robin Franklin is Professor of Stem Cell Medicine and Head of Translational Science at the Wellcome Trust-MRC Cambridge Stem Cell Institute. His lab works on the mechanisms of CNS regeneration with a particular focus on remyelination, an adult stem/precursor cell-mediated process in which new myelin sheaths are restored to demyelinated axons. We have awarded a grant to Professor Robin Franklin for research into ways of promoting the regeneration of lost myelin and in particular to explore the hypothesis that microbiome may have a determining role in remyelination of the central nervous system.
