Drug discovery 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:

rapid drug discovery
retinal degeneration
Rapid drug discovery for retinal degeneration
Gene network for disease and drug action
