In order to understand how parts of the human brain, especially the retina, function in health and disease, we perform an interdisciplinary and integrative approach combining stem cell research, systems biology, bioengineering, biomedicine with visual neuroscience. Our ultimate goal is to develop innovative therapies to protect, preserve and restore visual functions.
