About Webinar:
Neuroinflammation, defined as the activation of endogenous glial cells and their complex interplay with other cell types via cytokines, chemokines and other factors, is a component of all central nervous system (CNS) injuries, infections, and neurodegenerative diseases.  Although neuroinflammation is a normal response to CNS injury, a great deal of emphasis has been placed on its potential negative effects and how these might be modified to effect better outcome in CNS disorders.  To this end, multiple models of neuroinflammation have been developed for use in preclinical animal studies.  In this webinar, Dr. Kerry O’Banion (University of Rochester) will discuss several different models of neuroinflammation and provide an overview of their use in studies of neurodegenerative disease.  Emphasis will be placed on differences between the models, including considerations for their implementation and limitations in interpreting results.
