Disease-causing gene network and novel therapies for retinal degeneration

Retinal degeneration is a group of inherited eye diseases including retinitis pigmentosa and age-related macular degeneration that impair our vision. Although much has been learned about the molecular basis of these diseases, they are still incurable. To expedite discovery of new drugs for these diseases, our group at Purdue University studies zebrafish retinal-degeneration models.

The research interests of our lab are currently focused in two directions:

retinal degeneration
rapid drug discovery
1. Disease-causing gene network
for retinal degeneration
2. Rapid drug discovery for
retinal degeneration
