Science and Research
Clinical genetics research
Our team is devoted to understanding the molecular mechanisms of blinding eye diseases. We apply innovative biotechnology and bioinformatic solutions to study these diseases and develop new treatments.
Why this research is important
We are most interested in new biological technologies that are being developed, that have the potential to answer almost any question in biology.
In the near future, this will mean better treatments for devastating conditions such as glaucoma, macular degeneration and inherited retinal diseases.
Key research questions
- Why do common and complex eye diseases develop?
- What are the molecular underpinnings of these diseases?
- How can emerging biotechnologies be best used to treat inherited blinding disease?
