Why do cells in the eye and neurons in the central nervous system (CNS) fail to survive and regenerate after injury? Using primarily the retina and optic nerve as a model system our lab investigates why mature, central nervous system neurons fail to regenerate after injury, and how this failure depends on the regulation of gene expression and cellular signaling, during development and in the adult. Our research is directed at neuroprotection and regeneration of retinal ganglion cells and the optic nerve, a major unmet need in glaucoma and other optic neuropathies.
Multiple postdoctoral fellowships are available; generally graduate experience in eye, stem cell, molecular signaling, or neuroscience research is the best initial preparation.
