Research in this area is designed to bring basic research to Pediatric Ophthalmology and foster research collaborations with the clinical faculty.
Researchers investigate the formation of different components and processes of the eye including the retina, lens, vasculature and color vision, with the goal of providing insight into the mechanism of ocular diseases. To facilitate these aims visual system researchers use a variety of model organisms including Drosophila, frog, chick and mouse.
