Prof Charles ffrench-Constant studies neural stem cells and their ability to form oligodendrocytes, the cells that form the myelin insulation layer. The aim of his laboratory is to find ways to activate neural stem cells in the brain, so that they move to the area that has been damaged and repair the myelin layer. In order to do so, the mechanisms that regulate stem cell migration, their transformation into oligodendrocytes, and the wrapping process around the nerve cells need to be understood.
