The brain and spinal cord are notoriously poor at repairing themselves once damaged by injury or disease.

Yet recent advances in the biology of stem cells and a growing understanding of why regeneration in these structures is poor make scientists more optimistic than ever before that new therapies will emerge that will support healing and recovery from neurological disease.

In this talk Prof Franklin will discuss some of these issues focusing on his own work in repair of myelin, the substance lost in multiple sclerosis, and spinal cord injury.
