Dr. Simons’ research focuses on developing new ways to promote remyelination of damaged axons in demyelinating diseases such as multiple sclerosis (MS). To reach this goal, his lab strives to better understand the cellular processes underlying myelin formation in normal development.
Simons received his MD from the University of Heidelberg and did his residency in neurology at the University of Tübingen. He joined the University of Göttingen in 2004 and, in 2016, he moved to Munich to become Director of the Institute of Neuronal Cell Biology at the Technical University, and the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases.
