Research Focus

The research in the Retinal Restoration Laboratory focuses on understanding cellular signaling pathways that contribute to retinal degenerations and retinal ganglion cell loss after optic nerve damage. Our overall goal is to generate new insights into the molecules and specific neuronal-glial interactions that contribute to the progression of these ocular diseases. We are defining key regulatory signals that restore tissue homeostasis, which will be applied to developing new treatments for rescuing vision in these diseases.
