‘Neuronal Plasticity and Neurorepair’, a group led by Professor José Ramón Alonso, is making progress in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.

The potential of stem cells to repair brain damage and progress in the treatment of all kinds of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s, has been showing significant results in recent years. However, it’s about as complex a field as the brain itself and ensuring the results of every research study is critical.

This is understood by one of the world’s pioneers in this field, Professor of Cell Biology at the University of Salamanca, José Ramón Alonso, who, despite his caution, has obtained “unprecedented” results with stem cell transplantation in mice with genetic brain damage, achieving “significant improvements at the motor level and also at the sensory level,” according to the head of research at Communication Universidad de Salamanca.
