Professor Peter Brophy

Chair of Anatomy
Director, Centre for Neuroregeneration

I am Director of the Centre for Neuroregeneration. My research is in the field of myelination and demyelination, particularly in the role of the myelin-forming cells, the glia, in the survival of nerve fibres. This is clearly of relevance to MND because we still do not understand why nerve cells die in this disease.
