We actively collaborate with our colleagues in the Wynn Institute for Vision Research in the study of blinding diseases including Bardet-Biedl syndrome, Best disease, Stargardt disease, Leber congenital amaurosis, retinitis pigmentosa, choroideremia, glaucoma, and other acquired and inherited diseases of the retina.

Our laboratory employs a multidisciplinary approach involving donated human eyes, cell culture models including induced pluripotent stem cells, mouse models, and anatomical, molecular, and functional studies. It is our goal to use this knowledge to improve treatments and ultimately develop cures for the millions of individuals whose sight is threatened by retinal and choroidal diseases.
