Abigail S. Hackam, Ph.D.
- Associate Professor of Ophthalmology
- Secondary Appointments in Molecular and Cellular Pharmacology and Program in Neuroscience
Cellular mechanisms of retina development and degeneration; bioinformatics, microarray and proteomics technologies; Genetic basis of human neurodegenerative diseases; age-related macular degeneration, retinitis pigmentos
The research in Dr. Hackam’s laboratory encompasses the fields of genetics and ophthalmology. Our focus is on understanding signaling mechanisms that contribute to retinal degeneration and tumorigenesis, through the use of cellular, molecular and bioinformatics analyses.
