Our preprint, “SRF transcriptionally regulates the oligodendrocyte cytoskeleton during CNS myelination,” uncovers the transcription factor SRF as a new regulator of myelination required cell-autonomously in oligodendrocytes for expression of genes, including actin-related genes.

Our paper, “CNS myelination requires VAMP2/3-mediated membrane expansion in oligodendrocytes”, reveals that developmental myelination requires exocytosis in oligodendrocytes to add new membrane and adhesion proteins. This sets the stage for ongoing work to understand how exocytosis is regulated (e.g. by neuronal activity) and whether this pathway is dysregulated in disease. Congrats to Mable, Koji, and […]
Emma is a Neuroscience PhD student who will be co-mentored by Dr. Marius Wernig. Welcome, Emma!
Brad spoke at Johns Hopkins, UNC Chapel Hill, the Myelin Gordon Research Conference in Italy, and the McKnight Conference on Neuroscience in Aspen. Husniye gave a talk at the Cold Spring Harbor Glia in Health and Disease conference and Myelin Gordon Research Seminar, and presented posters at both. Mable presented an award-winning poster at the […]
Congrats Maya on an outstanding quals, and thanks to your committee: Profs. Tony Wyss-Coray, Lucy O’Brien, and Marius Wernig.
Arne is a postdoc with Petri Kursula at the University of Bergen in Norway with a ton of biophysics experience. He’ll be enjoying some California warmth for the next year while learning cellular and in vivo approaches for studying myelin. Welcome, Arne!
Congrats Miguel, and best of luck with the new position!
…(European Glial Meeting in Marseille) on the cell biology of myelin membrane addition. Husniye also presented a poster on the role of actin disassembly in myelin wrapping.
Congrats Maya for this incredible achievement. Rock your run!
Maya is a graduate student in the Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine PhD Program. Previously she was a technician in the Barres lab working on reactive astrocytes. Welcome, Maya!
