Personal profile

Biography

My research interests have always been in the field of vision science and I have worked on developing and investigating gene therapy treatments for severe inherited retinal dystrophies along studies into understanding the cellular and molecular mechanisms behind age-related macular degeneration, uveitis, stem cells and AAV biology. My current focus is on creating research platforms in the area of retinal degeneration, gene therapy and cell death mechanisms.

Funding overview
