Microglial Activation: Understanding Neuroinflammation's Origins from thescientistllc on Vimeo.

Microglia are the brain's resident immune cells, transitioning from resting to activation upon sensing damage or a foreign substance. Activated microglia release a wave of chemical mediators, including chemokines, cytokines, and proteases, all of which promote the neuroinflammatory milieu. Understanding how microglia spark the fire of neuroinflammation is an active area of research. The Scientist is bringing together a panel of experts to review the latest understanding of microglial-induced neuroinflammation and to share their research on mechanisms and medicine. Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with the experts, ask questions, and seek advice on topics that are related to their research.

Topics to be covered:

  • What factors induce microglial activation in neurodegenerative diseases
  • Whether neuroinflammation is a protective state or agent of further damage
