Dr. Veronique Miron is a Senior Lecturer and Medical Research Funded Senior Research Fellow at The University of Edinburgh, in the United Kingdom Dementia Research Institute and MS Society Edinburgh Centre for Translational Research. Her lab’s research focus is on investigating the regenerative properties of inflammation in supporting white matter health, working towards identification of novel treatments for multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, and pathological ageing. More specifically, her lab’s work has shown that dynamic changes in microglia and macrophage function regulates efficient myelin formation or regeneration following injury. Recent work from the lab has revealed a novel regenerative factor produced by microglia that controls the oligodendrocyte lineage and white matter repair throughout the lifespan (activin-A), and novel mechanisms that regulate the generation of pro-regenerative microglia to induce remyelination (microglia turnover). Current work is focused on understanding how these processes are dysregulated when white matter integrity is poor, how to best target these processes therapeutically, and which additional cell types coordinate the activity of microglia in these contexts.
