Research interests

The major objective of our research is to understand the factors that lead to diabetic retinopathy (DR) and retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) in order to develop new treatment targets. Our research is conducted in animal models of retinopathy to ultimately translate our findings to patient studies. Our established network of basic scientists as well as clinical researchers and ophthalmologists (see below), allows this research to move rapidly forward and is enhanced by the new facilities and resources available in the Department of Diabetes.
