UVA researchers found that a type of cell believed beneficial in MS was part of the problem, offering a new treatment target.

UVA biologists have observed a cellular behavior never noticed in 150 years of research.

More than 5 billion of the world’s 7.3 billion people lack access to safe surgical care. UVA neurosurgeon Dr. Hasan Syed hopes his new Global Brainsurgery Initiative can help, and he’s already found success in Vietnam and Panama.
