Dr Hannah Botfield
British Neuroscience Association/ University of Birmingham
Hannah Botfield is a research fellow based within the Institute of Inflammation and Ageing.
Her research interest is in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) dynamics in health and disease. Her work focusses on understanding the pathology behind CSF dysfunction in disorders such as hydrocephalus and haemorrhagic stroke, with an emphasis on the role of inflammation, matrix biology and ageing.
Glial responses in brain injury and repair
Glial cells represent 50% of neural cells and play important roles in supporting the development and functioning of the healthy brain. They are therefore interesting therapeutic targets for CNS repair following injury and disease. In this talk we highlight the rodent models we are using to explore these ideas, and present data on neuroepithelial cells, astrocytes, oligodendrocytes and microglia highlighting the potential of glial cells as targets for stimulating repair in the brain.
