Wayne State researcher receives grant from the National Multiple Sclerosis Society to explore new causes of MS
Wayne State University Division of Research

Alexander Gow, Ph.D., professor and associate director of the Center for Molecular Medicine and Genetics and professor of pediatrics and neurology at the Wayne State University School of Medicine, received an award from the National Multiple Sclerosis Society for a study into the causes of multiple sclerosis. The grant will explore the early roots of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in patients that Gow believes may begin years ‚ÄĒ perhaps even decades ‚ÄĒ before symptoms become apparent.

Magnetic Microcoils Unlock Targeted Single-Neuron Therapies for Neurodegenerative Disorders
American Institute of Physics (AIP)

In the Journal of Vacuum Science & Technology A, researchers deploy an array of microscopic coils to create a magnetic field and stimulate individual neurons. The magnetic field can induce an electric field in any nearby neurons, the same effect created by an electrode but much more precise. They used an array of eight coils, which combined can induce electric fields using much less current per coil, and employed soft magnetic materials, which boost the magnetic strength of the coils. The researchers constructed a prototype of their coil array, called MagPatch, and encapsulated it within a biocompatible coating.

The findings, published in Structure, could lead to better ways to diagnose and treat these conditions.
