Neuroimmunology & Glia Research Group held annual symposium April 24

This annual symposium brought together basic science and clinical researchers to focus on the mechanisms by which glial cells - microglia, astrocytes and oligodendrocytes - critically modulate injury and disease processes within the CNS via their interactions with neural development, signaling, and plasticity, as well as with peripheral endocrine and immune processes.

The event took place Wednesday, April 24, from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., at the Rigmor House in Chapel Hill. Registration is required. Please click HERE to register.
