We are a multidisciplinary group and combine the experience in cell therapy, transplantation, stem cell differentiation, retinal development, retinal cell biology, retinal electrophysiology, small and large animal models of disease. The lab is supported by the BrightFocus Foundation, Gilbert Foundation, Massachusetts Lions, and NIH/NEI Audacious Goal Initiative.
The Massachusetts Eye and Ear provide an outstanding environment for research and career development. We have state-of-the-art facilities for benchwork and functional animal studies, and mentoring program is supported by NIH T32 Training Grant.
