The Role of Astrocytes in Neurodegenerative Disease
Dr. Liddelow explains how he and his team approached their research, including the initial questions they set out to answer, the roadblocks they encountered, and how they discovered a neurotoxic form of reactive astrocytes. Shane and his team set out to study the interactions between astrocytes and neurons, hoping to better comprehend the functional roles of astrocytes in a range of neurodegenerative diseases.
