Neural Stem and Progenitor Cells in Nervous System Function and Therapy

Description

It is now widely accepted that neural stem and progenitor cells generate various new cell types for the developing nervous system and continue to add new cells to the mature nervous system. Over the last three decades significant advances have been made in this research field, which have developed our understanding of how neurogenesis and glial generation occur and the role of these new cell types in neural processes including learning and memory functions. However many questions surrounding the regulation of neural plasticity remain unanswered. Even less understood is the contribution that neural stem and progenitor cells can make to offset nervous system disease and overcome traumatic injury. Experimental, theoretical, and review papers are welcome in this area.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Characterisation of signalling systems that regulate neural stem and/or progenitor cell behaviour in the healthy nervous system
  • Insight into the functional importance of neural stem and/or progenitor cells for enabling normal nervous system function
  • Understanding of the neural stem and/or progenitor cell response to nervous system damage
  • Identification of factors that prevent neural stem and/or progenitor cells from repairing the damaged nervous system
  • Therapeutic manipulation of neural stem and/or progenitor cell populations (or their environment) for the treatment of nervous system disease or trauma
