Summer School on Genetics in MS

Press/Media: Research

Description

Young MS researcher, Ms Katherine Sanders has got off to a flying start after receiving an MS Research Australia postgraduate scholarship supported by the Trish MS Research Foundation earlier this year.

Working under the supervision of Associate Professor Lotti Tajouri at Bond University and collaborating with Associate Professor Jeannette Lechner-Scott at the Hunter Medical Research Institute in NSW, MS Sanders is investigating the role of microRNAs in the immune system in MS. MicroRNAs are molecules involved in controlling genetic activity in different cell types and may reveal clues about the biology of MS as well as potentially providing markers to track disease activity and progression.
