Laboratory for Retinal Neuroplasticity
This laboratory uses electrophysiological, imaging, and genetic approaches to understand the ability of retinal neurons to recover functionally and/or structurally after injury or disease. The focus is on glaucomatous optic neuropathy and the goal is to develop strategies to prevent and/or restore loss of neural function. Projects are conducted in both human patients and models using non-invasive techniques that allow immediate translation of research findings.
