Retinal Regeneration

The focus of our work is the development of cell-based strategies for the treatment of retinal degenerations characterised by photoreceptor loss.

Methods for the efficient generation of transplantable cells from in vitro expandable cell sources, enrichment of donor cells, and transplantation into mouse models of retinal degeneration are investigated with the goal to replace degenerated photoreceptors.


  • Mouse models of retinal degeneration,
  • cell culture,
  • stem cells,
  • subretinal & vitreal transplantation,
  • electroretinography,
  • molecular biology,
  • immunocyto/histochemistry
