Dr. Saul A. Villeda and his team at UCSF have published an excellent story on the role of beta-2-microglobuline in cognitive function and neurogenesis in Nature Medicine this week. The groundwork for this study has been laid in the laboratory of Prof. Wyss-Coray at Stanford University. We are happy that we could contribute to this publication and congratulate all co-authors for this achievement. Read the publication here and have a look at Dr. Villeda's and Prof. Wyss-Coray's websites.
