The Sherman lab has found that the glycosaminoglycan hyaluronan (HA) accumulates throughout the brain with normative aging, a process that is accelerated in cases of age-related vascular brain injury and dementia.
Dysregulated HA signaling through the CD44 transmembrane HA receptor leads to cognitive dysfunction, altered neurogenesis, and a persistent neuroinflammatory response involving changes in brain vascular endothelial cells.
The talk will highlight how each targeted approaches to treating age-related cognitive decline can be implemented with respect to both of these processes.
is Professor at the , Beaverton, USA. The Sherman lab focuses, among other things, on how neuronal cell differentiation is regulated and how these cells can be influenced to promote recovery from neurodegenerative diseases.
