Research Summary

Our lab focuses of the means by which specialized cells of the retina, photoreceptors, survive or die in a range of blinding disorders. Understanding these mechanisms provides insight into how they could be delayed to preserve sight. We are also interested in evolutionary morphology, particularly of the retina, in a wide range of vertebrate species.
