We investigate the diverse, so far poorly understood roles of the microenvironment’s biophysical properties in the development, maintenance and regeneration of the peripheral nervous system at the tissue (nerves), cellular (e.g. glial cells, neurons) and molecular (proteins) levels. We are also interested in the implications of impaired microenvironment’s biophysical properties for inflammatory demyelination neuropathies.
